Two Islamic State operatives were arrested in Kenya after trying to launch an anthrax attack, raising fears the terrorist group is increasingly close to acquiring the deadly biological weapon.

Kenyan media reports that both operatives were medical interns at Malindi hospital, who studied at Saratov State Medical University. “The two were planning to acquire fake travel documents to facilitate their escape to Somalia,” Kenyan counter-terrorism authorities told Kenyan media.

The hospital has a history as a breeding ground for Islamic terrorists. Four other interns at the hospital were arrested by Kenyan authorities in 2015 for planning to join ISIS. Another Kenyan medical intern at a separate hospital, Mohamed Ali, was arrested in April for trying to plan an anthrax attack.
