They are due to appear again in court on Jan. 14. Wong, Shum and Leung were among more than 100 people arrested in Mong Kok over the past two days. ...

Researchers say they're a step closer to developing an Ebola vaccine, with a Phase 1 trial showing promising results, but it will be months at the earliest before it can be used in the field. The news comes amid the worst ever outbreak of the hemorrhagic fever, which has killed nearly 5,700 people, mostly in West Africa. In the first phase of testing, all 20 healthy adults injected with a higher or lower dose of the vaccine developed antibodies needed to fight Ebola, said the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which conducted the study. "The unprecedented scale of the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa has intensified efforts to develop safe and effective vaccines," said Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which is developing the vaccine alongside GlaxoSmithKline.

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — A suicide bomber rammed a car packed with explosives into a British embassy vehicle in the Afghan capital on Thursday, killing at least five people, including a foreigner, Afghan officials said.
OPEC ministers are meeting in Vienna Thursday for a pivotal decision on whether to slash production, faced with a glut that has sent prices plunging by over 30 percent in five months. The 12-nation cartel is under pressure from its poorer members like Venezuela and Ecuador to cut output as collapsing prices have slashed their precious revenues. The price of US benchmark oil fell to a new four-year low Thursday on growing expectations that the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries will not take significant action in Vienna, home to the cartel that pumps out about a third of the world's crude. Crude prices have been depressed also by a strong dollar and worries about stalling energy demand in a weak global economy.

The parliament finally reached a decision based on the report of the National Oil Spill Detection and Response Agency (NOSDRA), which previously recommended a fine of $5 billion. Shell declined to comment. ...

The streets of Ferguson were decidedly calmer after two days of nationwide protests against the decision not to prosecute a white policeman who shot dead an unarmed black teenager. Just a few dozen protesters and clergy braved rain and light snow Wednesday to protest outside the police department in the St Louis suburb, where 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed on August 9. A Missouri grand jury decided Monday not to prosecute Officer Darren Wilson, who fired the fatal shots -- a move that inspired coast-to-coast anger in the United States as well as a rally across the Atlantic in London. After they were rebuffed, extra police and a National Guard Humvee were drafted to protect the building.
