6 Tuskegee Students Stuck In Liberia Due To Ebola

TUSKEGEE, Ala. (AP) — A half-dozen Tuskegee University students stuck in Liberia because of the Ebola outbreak won’t be returning to the United States for nearly two more weeks.

A university statement released Wednesday says the students are safe and in regular contact with administrators.

But the group isn’t expected to leave Liberia until Aug. 17, and the students won’t return to the United States until Aug. 18.

The six students went to Africa as part of a summer program to study abroad. Their return is being delayed because of travel restrictions linked to the outbreak of the deadly disease in West Africa.

The school says the students aren’t sick and remain in good spirits.

The students will leave Liberia for Ghana and then return to the United States from there.
