Bubonic Plague In NYC

Bubonic Plague In NYC
Two people from New Mexico were diagnosed with bubonic plague and remain in isolation at Beth Israel Medical Center. This is believed to be the first case in New York in at least 100 years.

10 to 20 people are infected with bubonic plague each year in the US, up to 3000 worldwide. It has wiped out over 200 million people in the last 1500 years.
The health officials say the plague does not spread from person to person so New Yorkers have nothing to worry about. It can be treated with antibiotics.

Iran Sentences Prominent Reformist To Death

Hashem Aghajiri, a university professor and an ally of Iranian President Khatami, was sentenced to death for questioning the clergy's exclusive right to interpret Islam.
He was also sentenced to 74 lashes, 10 year ban from teaching and 8 year internal exile. In light of the death sentence, the exile and ban on teaching are not likely to be carried out.
Aghajari is the leader of Islamic Revolution Mujahedeen Organization, which supports President Khatami's reforms. The accusations and sentence reflect the power struggle between conservative clergy and reformists.
