WASHINGTON An investigation into how Defense Department labs sent live anthrax spores to researchers in the United States and seven other countries did not find a single root cause but concluded that protocols to inactivate the bacteria were deficient, the Pentagon said on Thursday. A 38-page report on the discovery of the live anthrax shipments found that Defense Department personnel responsible for sterilizing the anthrax samples at four locations had followed their own protocols correctly #Business #Japan #Australia #Europe #South Korea #markets #opinion

Koran fragments found in UK library are among world's oldest, says university| Reuters

LONDON Fragments of a Koran manuscript found in a British university library are from one of the world's oldest surviving copies of the Islamic text, and may even have been written by someone who knew Prophet Mohammad, researchers said on Wednesday. Radiocarbon dating indicated that the parchment folios held by the University of Birmingham in central England were at least 1,370 years old, which would make them one of the earliest written forms of the Islamic holy book in existence. "They could well take us back to within a few years of the actual founding of Islam," said David Thomas, Professor of Christianity and Islam at the university. #Japan #Religion #Middle East #Europe #Education #markets #Entertainment
