A member of the clergy reads from the Bible to Ebola Patients in the recovery wing of the Hastings Ebola treatment centre in a neighbourhood in Freetown December 21, 2014. The rapid response team has arrived and the chaos is easing, but medics in a remote Sierra Leonean district are struggling to control a local Ebola outbreak when it's too late to nip it in the bud. A deployment of medical workers and equipment to Kono District has been the fastest so far in Sierra Leone, a country with nearly half the total Ebola cases,- under a strategy of tackling epidemic hotspots before they get too big. But officials say responses need to be yet faster to fight the fever that has killed more than 7,000 people across West Africa.

A Palestinian man, hoping to cross into Egypt, stands behind a fence as he waits at the Rafah crossing between Egypt and the southern Gaza Strip December 21, 2014. Egypt opened the Rafah border crossing on Sunday allowing Palestinians from Gaza Strip to travel in and out for the first time since the passage was closed on October 25, Palestinian and Egyptian officials said. The Rafah crossing was shut on Oct. 25 after Islamist militants in Egypt's adjacent Sinai region killed 33 members of the security forces in some of the worst anti-state violence since Islamist president Mohamed Mursi was toppled in July 2013.
