Anthrax Backpedal

The FBI now says the substance in the posession of two men arrested last week in Las Vegas was NOT Anthrax, but a vaccine for the deadly biological agent. One of the two men has since been released. The matter will be revisited tomorrow at a court hearing. Carrie Kahn of member station KPBS in San Diego has a report.
