By Lara Jakes Jordan and Matt Apuzzo Associated Press WASHINGTON -- The murder weapon was a flask. Army scientist Bruce Ivins was the anthrax killer whose mailings took five lives and rattled the nation in 2001, prosecutors asserted Wednesday, alleging he had in his lab a container of the lethal, highly purified spores involved and access to the distinctive envelopes used to mail them.

By Donna Leinwand, Ken Dilanian, Steve Sternberg and Dan Vergano WASHINGTON -- On several nights before the anthrax attacks in September and October 2001, bioweapons scientist Bruce Ivins repeatedly spent long periods alone in a secure laboratory that housed a strain of the lethal bacteria. He later "could provide no legitimate reason" for his after-hours work to investigators, who used new DNA technology to match the specific strain of spores in Ivins' lab with the one used in the attacks....

By Rupert Cornwell A LEADING army microbiologist suspected of being behind the anthrax mailings in the US in autumn 2001 has apparently committed suicide, it emerged yesterday - just as federal prosecutors were preparing to bring capital charges against him for the attacks, which killed five people and infected 17 others.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. _ Ernest Blanco is a man of fortitude and faith. After a near-lethal struggle with anthrax that left him weak and sick for months, the mail room clerk remained convinced the FBI would find out who sent the deadly, bacteria-filled letters that killed five people and made 17 people ill, even as the investigation stretched into its seventh year. A fellow employee _ photo editor Bob Stevens, 63, of Lantana, Fla. _ didn't survive the anthrax that was delivered to the...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A federal appeals court reinstated on Thursday a libel lawsuit by former U.S. Army scientist Steven Hatfill against The New York Times Co. over a series of columns that he said implicated him in the deadly anthrax mailings in 2001. By a 2-1 vote, a panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a federal judge's dismissal of the lawsuit that claimed that columns by Nicholas Kristof published in 2002 defamed Hatfill and caused him emotional distress. "At...
