What in the World: An Oregon teen contracts bubonic plague, the U.S. is sending troops to Syria, and a look at where uninsured Americans live

An Crook County, Oregon teen contracted bubonic plague after being bit by a flea on a recent camping trip. Eight people in Oregon have been diagnosed with bubonic plague since 1995. Wild rodents and fleas carry plague. In 2012, a Prineville man contracted plague from a domestic cat. (OPB, KTVZ)

The U.S. will send ground troops to Syria. President Obama authorized less than 50 special operations troops who will be in Northern Syria in Kurdish controlled territory. Troops are set to leave within a few days. (CNN)
