    OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Zoo officials in Omaha say a newborn African lion cub recently sent to the hospital has been reunited with her four siblings.
     Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium announced Wednesday that the female cub was put back on display at the facility's Cat Complex alongside her two brothers and two sisters. The cubs' mother and aunt also are in the display, and the cubs' father is in a separate display.
     The cub was bottle-fed at the hospital after officials say she was smaller than the others and couldn't compete for food.
     The cubs were born Dec. 29. Less than a dozen African lion births have been recorded in the past year at accredited zoos across the county. The tally does not include the newborn cubs.
