Trace amounts of anthrax have been found in the office mailrooms of two more US senators, a Congressional source said on November 20, 2001. The source said the anthrax, discovered during a weekend environmental sweep of the Russell office building, likely came from cross-contamination with a pair of earlier letters to Capitol Hill, one addressed to Democratic Senate Leader Tom Daschle (D/SD) and one to Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy. The as yet unopened letter addressed to Leahy of Vermont, shown here, has an October 9, 2001, Trenton, New Jersey, postmark and appears in every respect to be similar to the other anthrax-laced letters. óREUTERS
