Norwegian embassy in Tel Aviv receives threat

Israeli media has reported that the Norwegian Embassy in Tel Aviv was delivered a “suspicious” envelope containing a suspicious looking, unidentified white powder along with a threatening letter.

According to Radio Israel, over the period of about a week, this is the fifth embassy in Tel Aviv where such an incident has occurred. The US, Swiss, Spanish, and Turkish embassies all also received similar envelopes. Some contained letters making threats against a number of high-ranking politicians and the Nazi swastika.

On Wednesday, September 22, the envelope and its contents were sent by the Israeli police to a biological lab for testing and identification. Israelis fear the white powder could contain the fatal anthrax bacteria as in previous incidents.
