Poison Found in Paris Train Station Locker

A small quantity of the poison ricin was found Monday in a locker at the Gare de Lyon train station, the French Interior Ministry said today. Police officers who searched the locker found “two vials with a powder, a bottle filled with a liquid and two smaller bottles also containing a liquid,” the ministry said. The two smaller bottles, the ministry said, contained “traces of ricin in a mixture that turned out to be a very toxic poison.” Officials said the containers were being analyzed to determine the contents of the vials and third bottle. City officials are on high alert because of the outbreak of war in Iraq. Because of the alert, all train station lockers must be opened every three days and their contents examined, officials said, leading to the discovery of the vials at the station, which serves the south of France.
