British military experts fear terrorists could ‘weaponize’ Ebola, a heavily redacted Ministry of Defence (MoD) report has revealed.

The report, released on Friday, identified a number of scenarios in the event of a biological terrorist attack in the UK, and was drawn up by the MoD’s defense science and technology laboratory (DSTL).

While two scenarios have been almost completely redacted, with the second being described as “logistically and technically challenging for a non-state group to undertake,” the third detailed a fear that the spread of Ebola in West Africa could be transmitted into the UK.

Though few details are known about a possible plan, the report warns of “the feasibility of a non-state actor (NSA) exploiting the Ebola outbreak in West Africa for bioterrorism.”

The first scenario, which was completely blacked out, also carried a note reading: “Clearly there are practical issues involved with such a scenario that of themselves are often not insurmountable but taken together add to the complexity of successfully undertaking this attack.”
