Germ attacks reach Europe.

THE current wave of anthrax attacks is feared to have spread to Pakistan and Europe. The newsroom of Pakistan's biggest-selling daily paper was sealed off after a letter received 10 days ago tested positive.

In Germany, further tests were being carried out on a letter in the eastern state of Thuringia after initial tests there also came back positive. A second suspected case was reported in the northern state of Schleswig-Holstein.

The Pakistan case, at the offices of the Urdu-language daily Jang newspaper in Karachi, raised fears that it was in retaliation for the government's support for the United States-led bombing of Afghanistan.
