The spokesman for the health
ministry, Shraga Haber, said
that ministry investigators have
good reason to assume that a
cholera-infested terrorist had in-
filtrated to the West Bank from
Jordan, died in a refugee
and been buried there secretly.
The terrorist had apparently
carried the cholera germs into
the country, the spokesman said.
Meanwhile, all border crossing
points have been put under strict
health supervision to combat the
cholera outbreak, which started
last Friday with the discovery of
a case in the Anata refugee camp.
