Official: Possible biotoxin detected at DC-area mail facility

Federal authorities responded Tuesday to a report of a possible hazardous substance at a mail facility at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in the nation's capital, Lt. Col. Thomas F. Veale, a military spokesman, told CNN.

A potentially harmful substance was detected during a routine screening of incoming mail, Veale said.

Tests indicate it is a possible biotoxin, he said.
