JUDY WOODRUFF, CNN ANCHOR: CNN has just confirmed a story. And that is that a second employee of the "New York Post", the New York tabloid newspaper, has been diagnosed with skin anthrax, cutaneous anthrax.

According to the information we have -- and some of this we know has come from the Reuters news service -- this is a male employee in the mailroom, the place of the newspaper that processes the mail, has been diagnosed with skin anthrax and has been taking the antibiotic Cipro for several days.

Now, we know the "New York Post" had already disclosed that a female employee, I believe her name is Johanna Huden, who works in the office of the editorial page editor, had come down with skin anthrax and, of course, has been taking the Cipro. Now this is the second employee at the "New York Post."
