The plague kills 40 al-Qaeda

The Sun reported At least 40 al-Qaeda fanatics died horribly after being struck down with the disease that devastated Europe in the Middle Ages.
Will they infect their 72 virgins?
The killer bug, also known as the plague, swept through insurgents training at a forest camp in Algeria, North Africa. It came to light when security forces found a body by a roadside.
It couldn't have happened to a more deserving bunch.
... Now al-Qaeda chiefs fear the plague has been passed to other terror cells — or Taliban fighters in Afghanistan.
The gift that keeps on giving. I just hope it was natural, due to their uncivilized living conditions, and not an indication they were developing bacteriological weapons.
Update: As I suspected it looks like Al Qaeda bungled a biological or chemical weapons arms experiment.
