NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — New screening procedures for some passengers coming into the U.S. from western Africa are beginning this morning at Newark Liberty and four other airports in the widening Ebola crisis.

Screeners will use no-touch thermometers to identify passengers with fevers arriving from three west African countries.
