U.S. soldiers isolated in Italy

26 Oct, 2014

Soldiers returning from Liberia are reported to be placed in isolation in Vicenza for 21 days. Among the 11 soliders reported to be in isolation is Maj. Gen. Williams, who was the commander of the U.S. Army in Africa but turned over duties to the 101st Airborne Division over the weekend. They were apparently met by Carabinieri in full uniform. If the policy continues, hundreds of soldiers will end up in isolation. Another 30 are due to fly in to the country Monday. The Pentagon refers to the quarantine as ‘enhanced monitoring’. The soldiers are confined to a building, and can’t see their families.
