Israeli Consulatre Threat

Israeli Consulatre Threat

  •  
     
    Today during a routine mail scan at approximately 12:00pm, security officials at the Consulate General of Israel to New England identified a suspicious envelope with a powder-like substance on the exterior. Upon further inspection, a smaller envelope was found inside with a powder-like substance inside and "ANTHRAX" written on the exterior. Similar envelopes were identified at Israeli government offices in Europe at approximately the same time.
     
    The Boston Police Department, Boston Fire Department, the United States Department of State and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have been contacted to further investigate the situation, identify the suspicious substance and properly dispose of it. Work is continuing in the Consulate as normal in the meantime.
     
    The situation is developing and updates will be issued as necessary.
