Denmark Resident Tests Positive for Zika Virus
Health officials in Denmark said Wednesday a resident who had traveled to South and Central American has tested positive for the Zika virus.
According to the World Health Organization, the mosquito-borne virus could be linked to 4,000 suspected cases of microcephaly in Brazil, a condition that results in abnormally small heads in newborns and can affect brain development.
There is no treatment or cure for Zika virus infections, and an outbreak in Brazil and at least 20 other countries and territories in the Americas has prompted public health warnings.
Authorities in El Salvador and Colombia have recommended women postpone getting pregnant. In Brazil, 200,000 troops are traveling to homes to distribute pamphlets with advice on mosquito eradication.
One Dead as FBI Arrests Oregon Standoff Leaders
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has arrested the leaders of a group that occupied a wildlife refuge in the northwestern U.S. state of Oregon for nearly a month.
Leader Ammon Bundy and several others left the refuge Tuesday and were reportedly driving to speak at a community meeting when authorities stopped their car.
An FBI statement said shots were fired during the joint operation with state police, leaving one suspect dead and another wounded.
Bundy and his brother Ryan were arrested along with Brian Cavalier, Shawna Cox and Ryan Waylen Payne. In separate arrests, authorities also took Peter Santilli and Joseph Donald O'Shaughnessy into custody.
They are all charged with felonies of conspiracy to impede U.S. officers from discharging their official duties through force, intimidation or threats.
