    Kent Brantly always wanted to be a medical missionary, and he took the work seriously, spending months treating a steady stream of patients with Ebola in Liberia.

The Texas-trained doctor says he is "terrified" of the disease progressing further.

    Israeli jets pounded three Hamas sites in Gaza on Monday after a rocket was launched at Israel, disrupting a relative lull in the war-torn territory at the start of a major Muslim holiday. The strikes followed an almost 12-hour pause in fighting and came as international efforts intensified to end the three week conflict between Israel and Hamas. The U.N. called for an "immediate" cease-fire.

A man in Peru reportedly confessed to killing his ex-girlfriend shortly after she appeared as a contestant on a controversial reality TV show.

Bryan Romero Leiva allegedly poisoned and strangled Ruth Thalia Sayas, 19, after she admitted on-air that she worked in a nightclub and had accepted money for sex on two occasions.

Sayas appeared on Peru's "El valor de la verdad," or "The Value of Truth," a reality show in which contestants must answer personal questions in front of their loved ones. Contestants must pass a polygraph test before the show to verify their answers.

Leiva and Sayas' parents watched from a nearby couch as Sayas answered intimate questions about herself on the show.

Authorities reportedly say Leiva felt entitled to the 15,000 soles ($5,700) Sayas won from the show.

The show's host Beto Ortiz defended the quiz show, saying Sayas' death was not caused by her appearance on the show.

"What they are doing is giving an alibi to the defenders of a soulless criminal, because they are taking away his responsibility by saying that television creates monsters," Ortiz reportedly said.

    From coffee shops in Brooklyn to restaurants in Manhattan, we find speakeasies standing out by blending in. When people in Bushwick want a green machine juice blend they visit Leticia Castillo's Owl Juice Pub. But first they must find the owl. "We been doing fine without a sign," Castillo says.

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.
