"This city was, is, and will be Ukrainian!" President Petro Poroshenko told a crowd of hundreds in the embattled coastal city of Mariupol. His trip to the port, just days after it faced sustained rebel fire, underscored that Ukraine is unlikely to willingly loosen what remains of its grip on the rebellious east. Russia sanctions: The European Union shied away Monday from slapping new economic sanctions on Russia because of its actions in eastern Ukraine. Instead, the 28-nation bloc said punitive measures would come "in the next few days," depending on how well the truce holds between pro-Russia separatists and government troops. OUTBREAK IN WEST AFRICA U.S., Britain to help with Ebola fight The U.S. and Britain will send medical equipment and military personnel to help contain west Africa's Ebola outbreak, as the World Health Organization warned Monday that many thousands of new infections are expected in Liberia in the coming weeks. The current Ebola outbreak is the largest on record and has infected more than 3,500 people and killed more than 2,000. The outbreak has taken a particularly heavy toll on health workers. WHO announced Monday that one of its doctors in Sierra Leone is infected. In response to the disaster, President Barack Obama said Sunday that the military will help set up isolation units and provide security for health workers responding to the outbreak. Col. Steven Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, said Monday that once set up, the center in Liberia's capital will be turned over to the government. There is no plan to staff it with U.S. military personnel, he said. Britain will open a treatment center in Sierra Leone. Briefly Chick-f il-A founder: S. Truett Cathy, who turned a hometown restaurant featuring a boneless fried chicken sandwich into the Chick-fil-A juggernaut, died Monday at 93. He was known as much for his Christian principles Chick-fil-A's are closed on Sundays as for his business acumen. He lived long enough to see his company rise from a local grill to the No. 1 U.S. chicken chain this year. Election stalemate: Afghan presidential candidate Abdullah Abdullah said Monday he would not accept the outcome of an audit of a disputed election runoff and that talks over sharing power with his opponent are deadlocked. U.S. officials say a unity government is necessary to preserve that nation's political stability. Immigrant children: The White House renewed its plea Monday for Congress to provide more money to deal with the unaccompanied children at the southern border. The request seemed likely to fall on deaf ears: Arrivals at the border have dropped. Jack's ID: CBS News reports an amateur sleuth says he used DNA to solve one of the greatest crime mysteries of all time: Who was Jack the Ripper? The serial killer was said to be behind at least five gruesome London murders in 1888. Russell Edwards credits a bloodstained shawl with helping to identify suspect Aaron Kosminski, who died in an asylum in 1889, as the killer. His book, "Naming Jack the Ripper" is to be released today in Britain. Free Press news services 9, 2014 Sault Ste.

Jan Brewer to declare a state of emergency as flood-waters turned portions of a Phoenix interstate into a deep canal and forced schools and the state House to close. At least two people died, including a 76-year-old woman who drowned. Another woman was trapped in her vehicle after it was swept away and submerged in at least 15 feet of water, Tucson Fire Capt. Barrett Baker said. "The water was flowing tremendously fast," he said. The rain was the remnant of Hurricane Norbert. The National Weather Service said Phoenix set a record for the most rainfall in a single day, with about 3 inches as of 7 a.m., breaking the record of 2.91 inches set in 1933. That's also more than the 2.71 inches the area receives in a typical, three-month monsoon season, the weather service said.

A state Department of Public Safety officer used the roof of his SUV to carry stranded motorists from a flooded area of 1-10. Cars and SUVs sat in water up to their hoods on the freeway, while dozens of motorists parked on wide shoulders in an effort to stay clear of floodwaters. RELATED DEVELOPMENTS ISIS killings: The New York Times reported Monday that members of the Islamic State killed at least 17 people in an attack on Sunni tribal fighters north of Baghdad. It said the attack showed the militants' determination to punish those who resisted its advances into parts of northern Iraq. The Sunni fighters' opposition to the Islamic State is seen as key to keeping the group from advancing, the Times said. Hagel's warning: As the U.S. considers how to expand operations against Islamic State militants in Iraq, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Monday that President Barack Obama needs to weigh all the consequences of what could be a lengthy campaign, and what could go wrong. "Once you start an air strike, or once you start any military action, it doesn't end there," Hagel said. "That's not an excuse for inaction, because, as we know, there are consequences to inaction, as well." Obama is expected to outline the plans Wednesday. Sunni militants. Lawmakers approved all of the candidates proposed for the new government, with the exception of a few posts, namely the defense and interior ministers. Al-Abadi requested an additional week to name them. Outgoing Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, former Prime Minister Ayad Allawi and former Speaker of Parliament Osama al-Nujeifi were given the largely ceremonial posts of vice president. Kurdish politician and former Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari was named one of three deputy prime ministers. Al-Maliki had been struggling for weeks to stay on for a third four-year term as prime minister. Opponents accused him of monopolizing power and pursuing a fiercely pro-Shi'ite agenda. The U.S. and other countries pushed for a more inclusive government that will ease anger among Sunnis, who felt marginalized by al-Maliki's administration, a situation that helped fuel the Islamic State's CORRECTIONS The Free Press corrects all errors of fact.

The extremist group's lightning-fast advance prompted the U.S. to start aid operations and air strikes on Aug. 8 as the militants threatened religious minorities and the largely autonomous Kurdish region.
