More on the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa on the World for 7-28

We continue to closely follow events in the Middle East today, where a lull in the fighting, relatively speaking, is giving both sides time to take stock of what's happened.

Plus, the Ebola outbreak in West Africa seems to be getting worse, with a reported case now in Nigeria. We'll speak with Dr. William Fisher, who was on the front lines in the battle against Ebola in Guinea recently.

Over the weekend, the Philippines registered the birth of the nation's 100 millionth baby. Reporter Aurora Almendral has the story of the nation's push to make birth control more available to women.
