Animal rights group targets researchers:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

An international extremist animal rights group claims that it has identified researchers in North America using non-human primates in experimentation and has sent to 80 of them booby-trapped letters containing concealed razor blades. The Washington, DC-based Foundation for Biomedical Research has warned that the group, calling itself Justice Department, has "committed recent acts of violence" in the UK and Canada. The US FBI is attempting to identify the people involved and the Foundation, a non-profit organisation representing the medical research community, warns those involved in animal experiments with primates to take care.
