BREAKING NEWS: Two Packages With Highly Potent Toxin Sent To Pentagon

It is being reported that two suspicious packages which were found to contain ricin, a highly potent toxin, were sent to the Pentagon.

According to a report from Fox News, the packages did not make it directly to the Pentagon but were received and flagged by an onsite mail delivery building.

The origin of the packages is not yet known, but the discovery of the toxin signals criminal intent.

From Fox News:

At least two packages suspected of containing ricin were sent to the Pentagon, but were flagged at a mail delivery building next door, a spokesman told Fox News on Tuesday.


And:

CNN reports ricin is a “highly toxic compound that is extracted from castor beans and has been used in terror plots.”

Here’s more:

A piece of mail delivered to the Pentagon mail facility has initially tested positive for ricin, according to two US defense officials.

The mail facility is in a separate building on the grounds of the Pentagon and the piece of mail which tested positive never entered the Pentagon building.

The FBI and the Pentagon Force Protection agency are responding and further testing is expected to be done by the FBI, the officials said.
