Terrorists Using Biological Agents (Including HIV) in IEDs

This really is not a new terrorist tactic. Funny how it does not get the condemnation it deserves when a drone strike on a legitimate target even with no collateral damage is portrayed as the worst thing since the Nazis were defeated.

"TALIBAN fighters are burying dirty needles with their bombs in a bid to infect British troops with HIV, The Sun can reveal.
Hypodermic syringes are hidden below the surface pointing upwards to prick bomb squad experts as they hunt for devices.

The heroin needles are feared to be contaminated with hepatitis and HIV. And if the bomb goes off, the needles become deadly flying shrapnel.
