Ebola virus outbreak will not change plans for Obama to host African leaders summit

FILE In this March 28, 2013 file photo, President Barack Obama speaks in the Cabinet Room of the White House in Washington, after a meeting with, from left, Senegal President Macky Sall; Malawi President Joyce Banda; Sierra Leone President Ernest Bai Koroma; and Cape Verde Prime Minister José Maria Pereira Neves. The U.S. embassy in Abidjan, Ivory Coast made history in June 2013 by hosting a gay pride reception attended by about two dozen openly gay Ivorians. Despite the groundbreaking nature of the event, reporters were barred from attending, and the only mention of it was a short blurb on the embassy website posted the following week. The discreet handling of the event encapsulates the Obama administration's cautious promotion of gay rights in Africa, an issue that is likely to come up during his visit, beginning June 26, 2013 to three African nations, two of which punish homosexuality with jail time.
