DALLAS (AP) — Members of the Liberian community in the Dallas-Fort Worth area say they're skeptical of assurances from federal health officials that there's no risk of getting the Ebola virus from a man who's now in a Texas hospital in critical condition. Officials say the man became ill several days after arriving in Dallas from Liberia, but he had gone to the hospital twice before doctors learned he had come from West Africa.

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Three Mexican soldiers have been charged with homicide, months after the Mexican army said it had killed 22 suspected gang members in a fierce shootout.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The U.S. Department of Energy says shipments of plutonium-contaminated waste to its troubled nuclear dump site in southeastern New Mexico may resume as early as 2016.
