Report: IS Researching Biological Warfare


Islamic State (IS, formerly known as ISIS) is working on biological weapons, according to data reportedly recovered from a IS-linked laptop, upping the ante in the global terror group's pledge to spread Islamism around the world by force.

Moderate rebels in Syria seized the generic-looking Dell laptop in a raid last year on an IS hideout in Idlib, a rebel leader known only as Abu Ali told Foreign Policy magazine's website Friday, from an IS terrorist with Tunisian origins.
