Ebola spreading in west africaRed Cross officials helping to lead the fight against Ebola in West Africa say the virus is spreading, and they're having trouble recruiting health care workers to combat it.

Antoine Petitbon of the French Red Cross said Monday that it's easier for him to recruit people to go to Iraq, despite the security hazards there.
