U.S. air marshal attacked with syringe in Lagos airport

[Ed. – This can’t be no big deal.  Wonder if we’ll get any straight answers on it.]

The FBI and CDC are investigating an attack on a federal air marshal who was injected with a syringe full of an unknown substance inside the Lagos, Nigeria airport on Sunday, according to a Situational Awareness notice obtained by FoxNews.com.

A federal air marshal reported being attacked by a subject while on the public side of the Lagos Airport on Sunday, according to an alert from TSA’s Transportation Security Operations Center distributed throughout the agency on Monday afternoon.

It appeared to be an isolated incident, the alert says.

“The [air marshal] reported that the subject stuck him with a syringe and it is believed he was injected with an unknown substance,” the alert says.

“After consultation with the consulate and physicians, the [federal air marshal] was given precautionary medication,” according to the alert.

The air marshal and the rest of his team–along with the syringe used in the attack– were immediately flown out of Nigeria and back to the U.S.

The syringe also was transported back to the U.S. for testing.
