Recent events in the Middle East have demonstrated the very real threat of the acquisition and use of chemical and biological weapons by terrorists on the battlefield or in ungoverned spaces.

These attacks have highlighted the need for countries to have effective national responses, particularly a strong investigative framework and established communication channels between technical experts, law enforcement, and national security stakeholders.

As part of the training in Nigeria, US technical experts provided local officials with guidance and information to establish universally adopted crime scene management protocols to ensure that any evidence collected at a CBW crime scene can be used.

in a court of law and ultimately bring the perpetrator to justice.

To Justice Local officials had the opportunity to navigate a simulated CBW crime scene in full personal protective equipment, practice crime scene documentation and perform proper decontamination procedures.

The engagement between the US and Nigerian experts also involved sharing best practices and lessons learned, resulting in a higher level of preparedness against potential CBW terror plans or attacks.

The United States is committed to working with allies and partners to counter the threat posed by CBW terrorism.
