US children monitored for Ebola symptoms

Schoolchildren have come into contact with the first patient to be diagnosed with Ebola on US soil, the governor of Texas has said.

At a news conference at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, Rick Perry said the children were being monitored "at home" for symptoms.

The patient is thought to have contracted the virus in Liberia before coming to the US nearly two weeks ago.
