Tribes oppose planned bioterror tests near Oklahoma graves
TULSA - The Associated Press
The Oklahoma-based Council of Confederated Chilocco Tribes says the federal agency didn’t inform the five tribes that it was releasing "potentially dangerous substances" on grounds where more than 100 children are buried. The council released a statement this past week opposing the tests.
The government insists the chemicals it wants to use are harmless. Some are found in sunscreens or laundry detergents.
One, called DiPel, is a biological insecticide.
