There was an anthrax scare at the Israeli daily Ma’ariv when the newspaper received a suspicious letter containing white powder, but police said it turned out to be a prank. Police evacuated the newspaper’s offices in Jerusalem and called in hazardous materials experts after they received an envelope with the suspicious powder and a note saying “regards from Afghanistan.”
