New terror attack fact sheets

Filed under: Biosecurity,Radiological & Nuclear Threats — by Christian Beckner on March 22, 2006

Earlier this month the National Academies released a set of fact sheets on different types of terrorist attacks – one each for biological attacks, chemical attacks, nuclear attacks, and radiological attacks. They provide useful and clarifying primers on these different types of attacks, answering questions that often confuse people, such as the differences between nuclear and radiological attacks. The fact sheets should be useful for professional training sessions as well as university courses on terrorism and homeland security.
