Patients in the Republican Hospital, the largest medical center in northern Iraq, are being treated for symptoms doctors say resemble those caused by
anthrax This is according to hospital sources, who refused to be named. Six people have died from this disease, and a wing has been cordoned off for
fear of spreading to other patients.
The sources said the doctors suspect that a patient brought to hospital two weeks ago was the cause of the disease.
Anthrax spreads quickly and the six patients were said to have caught the disease as they were being treated for other ailments in the hospital.
The patient who the doctors believe brought the anthrax was a shepherd and had already died, the sources said.
Although I have not seen any other sources on this, I feel that it should be brought to light. After yesterday's video release, the promise has been
made that things were to come. Al-Qaeda has been referenced to the Anthrax attacks in the United States after 9-11. The feeling is strong that things
in Iraq will get much worse, and a biological attack is not out of question.
