NEW DELHI — US officials have said that lax security at sophisticated Indian laboratories could make them targets for terrorists seeking biological weapons, according to comments made public in a leaked US diplomatic cable by Wikileaks on Friday.

The cable sent from the US Embassy in New Delhi in June 2006 and published in the British newspaper The Guardian, said India's public health system is ill-prepared in the event of a biological attack from terrorists.While the government of India sees the likelihood of such an attack as remote, US diplomats expressed concerns that Indian labs could be the source of material for a biological attack elsewhere.
