New rules on Ebola stun federal and local officials in New York and New Jersey. The teen gunman behind the latest school shooting may have been targeting his cousins. And Iran executes a woman convicted of murder - in a killing that human rights groups called self-defense against a rapist.
It's Monday, and here are the "5 things to know for your New Day."
Abundance of caution: A mandatory 21-day quarantine imposed by New York and New Jersey on health care workers returning from West Africa after treating Ebola patients caught local and federal officials by surprise and spurred a heated debate on handling the spread of the virus. The announcement came one day after a New York doctor who treated patients in Guinea became the first Ebola case diagnosed in the city and the fourth in the United States.
2. WASHINGTON SCHOOL SHOOTING
Targeting his cousins? When a teenage gunman opened fire at students in a high school cafeteria in Washington state, killing a female student before killing himself, he was not shooting at random targets, a relative said. Jaylen Fryberg, who witnesses said gunned down students at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, is the cousin of two of the wounded. "All three of them are cousins, and they live right close to each other," Don Hatch told CNN affiliate KOMO.
3. WOMAN HANGED
Self-defense vs. murder: An Iranian woman convicted of murder - in a killing that human rights groups called self-defense against a rapist - was hanged Saturday, state news agency IRNA reported. Reyhaneh Jabbari, 26, was sentenced to death for the killing of a former employee of Iran's Ministry of Intelligence and Security. The United Nations has said Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi hired Jabbari - then a 19-year-old interior designer - to work on his office. She stabbed him after he sexually assaulted her, the U.N. said.
4. CARDINALS OUTFIELDER DIES
Young talent gone: St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Oscar Taveras and his girlfriend died in a car accident in the Dominican Republic on Sunday, according to Bleacher Report and Major League Baseball. "We are all stunned and deeply saddened by the tragic loss of one of the youngest members of the Cardinals family," the Cardinals tweeted. Taveras was only 22.
5. CANADA TERRORIST ATTACK
Cops say gunman made video: The gunman responsible for the terrorist attack in Ottawa last week was "driven by ideological and political motives" and made a video of himself, police said Sunday. Authorities have identified the gunman as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau. They say he opened fire Wednesday at Canada's National War Memorial and Parliament Hill, killing army reservist Cpl. Nathan Cirillo. The gunman was then shot and killed by security.
