(CNN) – An American photographer being treated for Ebola in Nebraska has been given an experimental drug.
Ashoka Mukpo was in Liberia working with an NBC news crew when he was diagnosed with the disease. He was flown to the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, which has a biocontainment unit and had previously treated another American patient who eventually made a full recovery.
Dr. Angela Hewitt, who is treating Mukpo, says it is "too early to say" how he is responding to the experimental drug.
(CNN) – The organization Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) reports that a Norwegian staff member has contracted Ebola. The staffer had been working in Sierra Leone and was placed in isolation Sunday after developing a fever, the organization said.

(CNN) – The 2014 midterms are less than one month away, and the negative TV ads are starting to loop and draw blood.
An analysis by the Wesleyan Media Project of Senate ads finds 55% of all those ads watched on TV are aiming below the belt.
Including six new ads from Democrats rolled out over the last week.
Democrats have been more eager than republicans to open up the opposition research file and use the airwaves to attack their opponents, according to the Wesleyan study.
But the map and the math nonetheless suggest President Obama's party still might need a miracle to avoid losing control of the Senate.
CNN's John King breaks it down in the video above.
