BEIRUT (AP) — Activists say U.S.-led aircraft continue to pound Syrian territory held by the Islamic State group, killing nearly 20 people. Syrian oil installations held by the militants were among the latest targets as the coalition tries to dent one of the group's main revenue streams. The militants released dozens of detainees in their de facto capital, fearing further raids.

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — The air strikes against the Islamic State group have prompted the U.S. Embassy in Turkey to warn U.S. citizens of possible retaliatory terrorist attacks. The embassy says there is no information about any specific threats but the possibility of terrorist attacks in Turkey "remains high."

LONDON (AP) — Nine men are being held by police in London after being arrested as part of what authorities say is an ongoing investigation into Islamist-related terrorism. The men are suspected of being members of banned organizations as well as supporting and encouraging terrorism. Police say the operation isn't tied to a specific threat. Scotland Yard has also raided homes, businesses and community centers.

FREETOWN, Sierra Leone (AP) — Sierra Leone's government says things will go downhill fast unless more is done to contain the Ebola outbreak. The government says a nationwide lockdown last weekend revealed that the outbreak is worse than thought and ordered three more "hotspots" of transmission to be cordoned off. The outbreak is believed to have sickened more than 6,200 people in West Africa, killing nearly 3,000.

CANADENSIS, Pa. (AP) — Police in Pennsylvania say the suspect in the killing of a state trooper and the wounding of another may be playing some sort of cat-and-mouse game. As he continues to elude a massive, nearly two week-old dragnet, Eric Frein (freen) appears to have purposely made himself visible at times, staying just far enough away to make it unlikely he'd be caught in the rough terrain.
