Now， on to the latest on live anthrax sample
that was accidentally shipped to an American air base in Korea…
U.S. Forces are known to have not notified Seoul that it was sending an anthrax sample
to the country because they thought the samples were dead or inactive and therefore not dangerous.
A U.S. Army Chief of Staff said Thursday that he′s confident that the accidental shipment
of live anthrax to labs in nine states and South Korea did not endanger any lives，
saying that he was 99－point－9 percent confident that nobody was in danger.
The statement comes as the Pentagon said on Wednesday that live anthrax was sent to nine
U.S. states and the Osan air force base， south of Seoul.
A Pentagon official stressed that all the samples have since been destroyed in accordance
with appropriate protocols.
