    Biological and chemical weapons have been called "the poor man's atom bomb" because they are easily made and easily delivered. Though the delivery systems for them are low tech, they can be used with devastating results.

    The Japanese cult, Aum Shinrikyo, attacked a Tokyo subway with sarin gas on March 20, 1995, killing twelve people and injuring some six thousand more.

    Biological weapons have been in use for a long time. Rotting corpses and dead animals where hurled over defensive walls during siege in the 13:th century to spread deceases.
