12. SOUNDBITE: (English) Richard Boucher, US State Department spokesman "The first news is that the air filter sampling that was done, the ventilation system sampling that was done in this building, has come out negative, so as far as we know, nothing has spread beyond mail rooms. Three of the other samples tested positive for low levels of anthrax spores. Those three samples are from two different locations at the State Department mail rooms at the State Department."

14. SOUNDBITE: (English) Richard Boucher, US State Department spokesman "Our embassy in Lima, Peru tested diplomatic pouches that it received on October 25th. The contents of one of six diplomatic pouch bags in that shipment was found to contain small levels of anthrax spores. These test results were repeated and reconfirmed on Sunday, October 28th. No spores were found on the outside of any of the bags, nor inside any of the other five bags. The contaminated bag has been isolated and contained, and the department will issue instructions to the Embassy concerning its safe disposal."

16. SOUNDBITE: (English) Tommy Thompson, US Health and Human Services Secretary "The Cohen building has been presumptively positively tested for anthrax these past couple of days, and all of the individuals in the mail room are on antibiotics and we are letting all the individuals know, the mail rooms have been closed down. But presumptive positive means the environmental testing will now go through CDC labs in Atlanta, and that conclusion of that information will be sent back in the next 24 to 48 hours."
The threat of anthrax has sent U-S Supreme Court justices off to an alternative courtroom, as evidence of fresh contamination turned up at the U-S State Department and at least two more government buildings.
The discovery of anthrax last week in a remote mail site several blocks from the Supreme Court had already forced the closure of the main Supreme Court building.
The justices held court at a facility several blocks away while tests continued in their permanent quarters.
A court spokeswoman said the latest testing detected anthrax in only one place - a part of the basement mail room.
Tests elsewhere in the mail room and in other places in the building showed no evidence of contamination.
There were also positive tests on Monday for anthrax at the main U-S State Department building in Washington.
U-S State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said tests had come back positive for anthrax at the site.
He said the tests indicate low levels of spores and that the department's mail distribution network had been shut down.
Boucher said all mail workers were being given antibiotics as a precaution.
Last week, a mail supervisor at the State Department's mail facility in suburban Virginia was taken to hospital with inhaled anthrax.
Boucher also added that a mail pouch bag at the U-S Embassy in the Peruvian capital, Lima, had tested positive for anthrax spores.
The latest positive test results follow the discovery of anthrax at the U-S Justice Department, where officials announced on Sunday night that several locations in an off-site facility that handled its mail had tested positive for anthrax.
U-S Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson announced that yet another government building had tested positive for anthrax.
This time it was a building housing the Food and Drug Administration and the Voice of America.
On Capitol Hill, the Hart Senate Office Building remained closed on Monday, but other Senate offices were open.
The Hart building houses Senate Majority Tom Daschle's office, where an employee opened a letter containing a highly potent form of anthrax three weeks ago.
Since then, two postal employees from a Washington facility that processed the letter have died.
In all, officials have counted 14 confirmed cases of anthrax in the last three weeks, including three deaths from the inhaled form of the disease.
