US officials defend Ebola response; nurse moved

WASHINGTON (AP) -- In the face of skepticism in Congress, health officials tried to assure the nation Thursday that they can head off an Ebola outbreak in the U.S. despite mistakes that let the deadly virus spread to two nurses and cleared one of them to fly.

Some lawmakers pressed for a ban on travel to the U.S. from the region - a course President Barack Obama is resisting.
