An Arab disgrace – Middle Eastern leaders snub Shimon Peres one last time

September 29, 2016  •  Fox News

While Israelis and much of the world mourned the death of Shimon Peres, Arab governments and commentators remained largely silent or attacked the former Israeli president and prime minister who called himself their "partner in peace."

Some 37 years after the deadliest known release of anthrax spores in history in the Soviet city of Sverdlovsk, American scientists have sequenced the genome of anthrax DNA from the bodies of two people who died in the 1979 accident.

The study by scientists at Northern Arizona University and the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) used deep DNA sequencing methods to recreate the genome of the anthrax spores that infected 77 people living near the Soviet anthrax production facility, 66 of whom died when a tiny amount of anthrax spores -- between a few milligrams and a gram, or one-thirtieth of an ounce -- escaped from a military facility known as Military Compound 19.
