Police hunt anthrax hoaxer

POLICE are searching for an anonymous caller who telephoned a woman in the western Slovak village of Nenandovce and said, "Don't drink water, it is poisoned with anthrax".

The unnamed woman reported the call to Partizánske district police, who immediately warned the inhabitants of Nedanovce and neighbouring villages Krásno, Chynorany, and Brodzany not to drink water from the public water system.

Trenčín district police spokeswoman Lenka Bušová told the SITA news agency that officers were searching for the caller, who will face a penalty of up to two years imprisonment for spreading false alarm because it turned out the water was clean.
