  • Le personnel du ministère de la Défense examinent les lettres près du Pentagone à Washington DC le 2 octobre 2018

Au moins deux colis postés à destination du Pentagone cette semaine ont été suspectés de contenir de la ricine, un poison très puissant, a indiqué ce mardi un responsable.

Il a ajouté que les autorités attendaient toujours la confirmation que ces colis contenaient bien de la ricine. Au moins deux paquets suspects à destination d'une personne au Pentagone, ont été interceptés lundi dans un centre de tri à proximité, a détaillé Chris Sherwood, un porte-parole du ministère de la Défense.
