Washington, D.C.: While there has been considerable friction between the United States and Russia, mostly originating in Washington, there are some areas where there is cooperation, albeit very quiet cooperation. There have been very strong rumors, with some facts evident, that a splinter Muslim group has possession of stolen verola (smallpox) virus stolen from a German laboratory, that they have been planning to release in Israel. As an outbreak of smallpox would certainly not be confined to that country, frantic searches have been, and are being, conducted to locate the thieves and prevent a world-wide epidemic that could kill off half the world's population.
