WASHINGTON - Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Wednesday approved strict, quarantine-like monitoring for all US troops returning from the Ebola relief mission in West Africa, the Pentagon said.

Hagel signed a memo asking top military commanders to develop an implementation plan to place US military personnel returning from Ebola-affected countries into a "21-day controlled monitoring regimen," Rear Admiral John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary, said in a statement.
