Two employees at an Oslo post office were taken to hospital and placed in isolation ward, when they showed suspicious reactions including a rash with itching after having handled a letter addressed to the Israeli Embassy (photo).
The letter was Sunday morning under investigaton at the Norwegian Institute for Public Health, to check whether it has been contaminated with a chemical in some way, or with infectious matters.
It was first thought it could be anthrax, but this now seems unlikely, experts say, since the reaction was immediate.
The two postal employees have been released, since they are now without symptoms. They will now be questioned by the police, who are waiting for the results from the Public Health tests, before deciding on how to proceed.
According to NRK, it seems most likely that the letter was posted in Norway.
