For the first time since the Islamic State group formally announced its desire to conquer Saudi Arabia last month, government officials said terrorist elements had launched an attack on the Saudi border with Iraq. Four militants, one wearing a suicide vest, attacked a border fortification Monday, killing three Saudi border guards.

The militants’ official media wing for Iraq’s Anbar province published a photo essay taking responsibility for the attack, which is the closest ISIS has come to breaching the coveted Saudi Arabian border since it declared the existence of a caliphate in June. The suicide attack signals a change in the group’s strategy to conquer the kingdom. It was both the first direct attack on Saudi armed forces and the first documented attempt by the militant group to infiltrate the country. Despite the government’s past efforts to quell extremism, Saudi Arabia has become increasing vulnerable to ISIS advances.

Ebola virus

January 6, 2015

Cases 20 206, mortalities 7905.  Mortality%  39%.

With  current  extreme good  care the total mortality does not  rise  to  50 and over 50%   as in  August.

the rise in cases  seems to be more  linear than  exponential in my exl pictures.  Of cause only because of the  eager preventive  care and informative  work and strict  hygiene (BSL etc)
