When the song was originally released 30 years ago, a number of today's biggest pop acts weren't even born. But Bob Geldolf openly welcomed in the likes of Rita Ora (top right) and pop heart-throbs One Direction (Harry Styles, top centre) as he re-recorded his classic charity track Do They Know It's Christmas? in London on Saturday. Geldof (pictured main with co-writer Midge Ure) was among the first to arrive, looking upbeat as he made his way into Notting Hill's Sarm Studios ahead of Ellie Goulding (bottom centre) and Coldplay's Chris Martin (bottom right). Starbucks drinks that were delivered to the studio in crates (inset top) kept the stars energise as they record the track, set to be released on Monday.



An Israeli bio pharmaceutical company said that it has the resources to produce ZMapp – the drug that can potentially cure Ebola.

The death toll from the Ebola epidemic has climbed above 2,000, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said Friday, as it voiced hopes a vaccine could be available in November.

However, supplies of experimental medicines — including the prototype drug ZMapp — are limited, and “will not be sufficient for several months to come,” the World Health Organisation (WHO) warned Friday.

Protalix, an Israeli bio pharmaceutical company, said that it has the resources to produce the coveted ZMapp, which has recently run out, Israeli site The Times of Israel, citing Channel 2 TV‘s report, said Sunday.
