Virginia police say they have found a body which could be that of British-born student Hannah Graham, 18, who vanished in Charlottesville last month.

Virginia police say they have found a body which could be that of British-born student Hannah Graham, 18, who vanished in Charlottesville last month.

It was discovered in an abandoned property in Albemarle County, where the remains of another missing student were found in 2010.

Jesse Matthew, 32, was charged last month with abducting Ms Graham for the purpose of sexual assault.

Police are linking him to the earlier disappearance, and to a rape in 2012.

He was taken into custody by police in Galveston, Texas, 1,300 miles (2,092km) from where Ms Graham was last seen.

Thousands of volunteers searched areas of Virginia after the disappearance of the 18-year-old, who was born in Reading, southern England, and moved to the US with her parents at the age of five.

Ebola crisis: Spanish nurse tests negative for virus

The Spanish nurse who became the first person to contract Ebola outside West Africa has now tested negative for the virus, the Spanish government says,

The result suggests Teresa Romero, 44, is no longer infected – although a second test is required before she can be declared free of Ebola.

Ms Romero contracted the virus when treating two infected patients in a Madrid hospital earlier this month.

The Ebola outbreak has killed more than 4,500 people across West Africa.

Ms Romero tested positive for the virus on 6 October, after she treated two missionaries who had been repatriated from West Africa. The missionaries later died from the virus.

 

Ms Romero has said she might have become infected when she removed her protective suit.

A doctor in Madrid said she may have touched her face with her gloves after treating one of the missionaries.

Ebola: Hospital mistakes blamed for US transmission

A top US health official has said a mistake was “clearly” made by staff treating a man who died of Ebola in Texas, resulting in one being infected.

The female health worker infected is in an isolation ward in stable condition, awaiting confirmation of her diagnosis.

Dr Tom Frieden, head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said a full inquiry would be made into how the transmission occurred.

He said 48 other people who may also have had contact were being observed.

The health worker at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital wore full protective gear while treating Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan, health officials in Dallas say.

Duncan, who caught the virus in his native Liberia, died on Wednesday.

The current Ebola outbreak, concentrated in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, has resulted in more than 8,300 confirmed and suspected cases, and at least 4,033 deaths.

In other developments

  • The health authorities in Sierra Leone say they are now treating more Ebola patients in the capital Freetown than in the eastern districts of Kenema and Kailahun, where the first cases in the country were detected
  • European health officials investigating how a nurse in Madrid caught Ebola told the BBC they believe it was simply the result of an accident and the risks to the wider population remain very low
  • The UN special envoy on Ebola told the BBC the number of Ebola cases was currently increasing exponentially, but greater awareness would help contain the virus

‘Clearly a breach’

Dr Frieden said a full investigation would be conducted into how the infection had occurred

“Clearly there was a breach in protocol,” he told US broadcaster CBS.
