Two members of Israel’s Knesset from the Meretz Party received letters with suspicious contents Wednesday, prompting the closure of a section of the building amid fears of anthrax. Legislators Naomi Chazan and Yossi Sarid, accompanied by their assistants, were immediately taken to hospitals, where they were tested and treated for possible infection. Test results were not released.
