MONDAY: Ferguson National Guard, Ebola Clinic Looted, B.C. Bear Release, and more

Listen

Today the ongoing troubles in Ferguson, Missouri continue. It's been over week now since Michael Brown -- an unarmed black teenager -- was shot and killed by a local white police officer. With no end in sight to the protests, the governor of Missouri -- Jay Nixon -- called for the state's National Guard to be deployed to Ferguson...AND "There's no Ebola in Liberia". That's what protesters chanted this weekend when they attacked a quarantine centre in the Liberian capital, Monrovia. Dozens of patients infected with the Ebola virus were being held at the centre. Now many of those have fled - and are still missing. More than four hundred people have died from Ebola in Liberia during this latest outbreak of the virus.
