Nerve-Gas Attack?

From the Scotsman

AT LEAST 45 people, most of them children, have been hospitalised in the Russian region of Chechnya with an illness that doctors say might be nerve-gas poisoning. Pupils, teachers and workers began reporting breathing trouble and headaches on Friday at a school in the town of Starogladovskaya, emergency workers said.

If this is true, and it is a very large if (remember this part of the world has government news agency reports about the flying saucer that landed in the high school soccer field and the ramp was down and the children were entering and leaving the spaceship) it is very bad. If Islamic terrorists have gotten their hands on chemical weapons, whether from left over Soviet stockpiles or Iran or Saddam's supplies that were smuggled out of Iraq, we could very well be seeing them here.
