US MARINES IN PROTECTIVE SUITS OUTSIDE THE SENATE BUILDING IN WASHINGTON
U.S. Marines dressed in protective suits prepare to enter the closed Russell Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill, to retreive mail that could be contaminated, February 4, 2004. Two days after the discovery of ricin in the mailroom of Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, three Senate office buildings remained closed on Wednesday, displacing thousands of workers and raising echoes of a 2001 anthrax attack on the Capitol. No more ricin has so far been detected in the Capitol complex and no one is showing any signs of poisoning.
