Foreigners Attempt To Buy Anthrax

Foreigners have tried buying Anthrax from the Gothenburg University of Gothenburg’s laboratories.

A report from the Swedish Defence Research Agency shows that someone registered at a post box in Amman requested Anthrax bacterial colonies last year. This has happened before, but no bacteria have been forwarded or sold.

Since the terrorist attacks in the United States in 2001, Anthrax is regarded as a biological weapon.

However the authors of the report point out that medical researchers need to be more aware of the risks.
