Ebola hemorrhagic fever is a disease with a high fatality rate. It most commonly affects people and nonhuman primates such as monkeys, gorillas and chimpanzees. The fever is caused by an infection with one of five known Ebola virus species. Four of the strains can cause severe illness in humans and animals. The current outbreak in Congo is due to the Zaire ebolavirus, which has the highest mortality rate. Ebola is named after the Ebola River in what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo. The virus was first recognized in 1976, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Russia: Plane crash caused by pilots' error on speed data

Investigators say the crash of a Russian passenger plane that killed all 71 people on board may have been caused by the pilots' failure to activate heating for pressure measurement equipment, resulting in flawed speed data.

The Interstate Aviation Committee said Tuesday, after studying the plane's flight data recorder, that Sunday's crash occurred after the pilots saw varying data on the plane's two air speed indicators.

The flawed indication came because the pilots failed to turn on the heating unit for the plane's pressure measurement equipment prior to takeoff.

The pilots put the An-148 on autopilot after taking off from Moscow's Domodedovo Airport but took manual controls back when they saw clashing speed data.

The plane plummeted into a snowy field six minutes after takeoff, killing all 65 passengers and six crew.
