DR Congo announces end of Ebola outbreak

The Democratic Republic of Congo declares itself Ebola-free, with health experts saying the use of an experimental vaccine was a major factor in containing the most recent outbreak. Also, at least 14 Nigerian senators defect from President Buhari's ruling party to join the opposition. It’s a major blow to Buhari's hopes for a second term in office. And thousands of Kenyans find themselves homeless after parts of the country's largest slum are flattened to make way for a new road.
