President: Anthrax Traces Found in Pakistan
Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf confirmed Saturday two cases of anthrax traces being sent to Pakistani offices but said the exposure had not resulted in any infections.
A military government spokesman said one incident involved The Jang, the country's biggest newspaper, and the other the offices of the US computer company Dell.
Musharraf told a press conference: "I am told that there was exposure but that there was no infection."
When pressed for more details he added: "Two confirmed exposures, no infections and no casualties."
Musharraf said: "We don't consider it such a serious problem as maybe it is in the United States" -- ISLAMABAD,(AFP)
