Texas nurse who contracted Ebola identified

The second person in the United States diagnosed with Ebola has been identified. CNN has learned new details about the 26-year-old Dallas nurse who treated Thomas Eric Duncan at Texas Presbyterian Hospital.

Last Friday, Nina Pham went to the emergency room at the hospital where she works. She complained of a temperature spike and was admitted and placed in an isolation ward for treatment.

The head of the CDC said the transmission of the disease might have involved a "breach of protocol" among the possibilities - that in removing her protective gear, she might have come in contact with the virus.

The national nurses union was quick to charge the CDC with "scapegoating" and the CDC promptly apologized, saying they did not mean to imply that the nurse was at fault for catching the virus.

CNN's Erin Burnett has the latest.

New photos released of Kim Jong Un after 40-day absence

New photos have been released that North Korean state media claims to show leader Kim Jong Un in his first public appearances since vanishing from the public eye nearly six weeks ago.

For the first time, photos of Kim appear to show him at two public events and using a walking stick.

The state media story is dated Tuesday, but does not include the date that Kim actually made the visits, which will leave conspiracy theorists with plenty to talk about.

After all, Kim's disappearance sparked rumors ranging from enormous weight gain to a political coup.

Kyung Lah has this report.
