A former Nazi SS guard received a parcel suspected of containing anthrax. The parcel, which was sent to 90-year-old Anton Malloth, was found to contain a white powder that proved to be harmless, according to the Czech News Agency. Malloth was sentenced to life imprisonment in Germany this year for murdering a Jewish prisoner at the Terezin ghetto in 1944.
