Indonesia police probing French embassy threat
Three French embassy staff in Jakarta were kept in isolation overnight after coming into contact with a suspicious package that was suspected of possibly containing anthrax.
Indonesia's intelligence chief Lieutenant General Marciano Norman later said no harmful material was found in the envelope.
But he said that further investigations into the incident would take place.
The embassy staff members were released after receiving the negative lab results today.
Police had earlier said that two staff members had been sent to hospital, but the French embassy confirmed they were only confined on its premises.
Anthrax is a potentially lethal bacterium which has been used as a biological weapon by terrorists.
