(CNN) — American journalist Michael Scott Moore, held for more than two years by Somali pirates, has been freed, Moore’s family and a Somali official told CNN on Tuesday.

“We are just elated,” Marlis Saunders, Moore’s mother, said in a brief conversation. “It took a lot of work for us to get this point. And to hear he is free — just joyful, I can’t describe it.”

“All this is just so new,” said Saunders, who lives in Redondo Beach, California. “I did not have much time to talk with him. We just have a lot of things to do and I cannot talk anymore. We need a little time to evaluate all this.” FULL ARTICLE

LAX SECURITY HELPING EBOLA SPREAD
“Alarmed by the world’s worst outbreak of Ebola, West Africa leaders have declared extraordinary measures to fight the disease, including closing schools, authorizing house-to-house searches for infected people and, at least on paper, sometimes vowing to go beyond the standard international controls for halting the virus…But that tough stance is being accompanied by loose enforcement that is deeply worrying to doctors and health care workers trying to stem the rapid spread of the virus.” Two cases of Ebola have been confirmed in Nigeria, themost populous country in Africa. Meanwhile, an experimental drug appears to have helped save the two American missionaries infected with Ebola. And in New York City, health officials believe it is “unlikely” a man in quarantine there has Ebola, but are running tests to makes sure. [NYT]

“Nelson Mandela death: World mourns South Africa’s first black president” 2

Johannesburg, South Africa (CNN) — In a symbol befitting a nation in mourning, dark gray clouds swept over Johannesburg on Friday.

Under overcast skies that threatened to rain any minute, South Africans draped in flags and images of Nelson Mandela gathered on the streets to sing and dance.

Children spelled out “we love you Mandela” on the grass using rocks near his home in the suburb of Houghton. Nearby, stuffed animals and flowers sat in a heap.

Others wept as they lit candles.

Mandela, 95, died Thursday. The nation’s first black president battled health issues in recent years, including a recurring lung infection that led to numerous hospitalizations.

President Jacob Zuma announced the loss late Thursday night, long after many South Africans had gone to bed.

They didn’t find out until Friday morning.
