Live Anthrax Found in 2008 Military Shipment to Australia

U.S. Defense Officials announced Friday that a live anthrax strain has been found in a 2008 sample which was sent to Australia from the same U.S. Army facility identified for more recent, mistaken shipments to nine U.S. states and an air base in South Korea. The U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, did not know what kind of facility in Australia received the sample, which, like the others, was meant to have been inactive.
