Executed

Execution

ISIS announces the execution of Ofstad and Fan in its magazine Dabiq, saying they had been ‘executed after being abandoned by kafir nations and organisations’. It is believed both men were shot. Norwegian Prime Minister Solberg:

[We cannot confirm the killing]  but we have no reasons to doubt it…It is painful for the family and the whole country. [ISIS is} a barbaric group. We do not pay ransom…even if it hurts, we should never let the terrorists win.

Norwegian Foreign Minister Brede says the government is releasing the information in accordance with the family’s wishes. Chinese officials did not comment on Fan’s kidnapping.

Ebola vaccine trial successful

Invention

The rVSV-ZEBOV vaccine against Ebola is 100% successful in trials involving 4000 people which are conducted in Guinea. Brende says:

Having seen the devastating effects of Ebola on communities and even whole countries with my own eyes, I am very encouraged by today’s news. This new vaccine, if the results hold up, may be the silver bullet against Ebola, helping to bring the current outbreak to zero and to control future outbreaks of this kind. I would like to thank all partners who have contributed to achieve this sensational result, due to an extraordinary and rapid collaborative effort.
