Bacillus anthracis and many enterobacteriaceae (eg. Shigella Species) were used more than other microorganisms, in last years. Different Cults have used biological weapons to cause public and widespread fear and panic. Generally Pathogens divided into three Categories A, B and C. Each microorganism which belongs to these categories has their own specific pathogenicities. Also, these weapons have vastly developed in many Countries Such as Iraq, recently. So many studied and researched microorganisms were put and fixed in many bombs, Scud missiles and rockets.
