BRUSSELS – The European Union on Thursday came up with another $31 million to fight Ebola, as the bloc's leaders pressed to create a $1.26 billion fund to fight the deadly virus.

British Prime Minister David Cameron set that target last week and prior to Thursday's start of a two-day EU leaders' summit, the bloc's total anti-Ebola commitments were over halfway to that goal. Britain says it has committed $200 million toward fighting Ebola, more than any other EU nation.
