Foot and Mouth Disease in UK May Have Been Sabatoge

Authorities have traced the disease to a high security government lab, and are investigating whether it was deliberately spread. From the story:

The government's Health and Safety Executive said there was a "real possibility" the disease was spread by human movement, while the possibility it was transmitted by wind or floodwaters was negligible.

It said there were various potential routes for "accidental or deliberate transfer of material from the site."
