BBC Southeast Asia.



There has been a small outbreak of “zombism” in a small town near the border of Laos in North-Eastern Cambodia.
The culprit was discovered to be mosquitoes native to that region carrying a new strain of Malaria which thus far has a 100 percent mortality rating killing victims in fewer than 2 days.

After death, this virus is able to restart the heart of it’s victim for up to two hours after the initial demise of the person where the individual behaves in extremely violent ways from what is believe to be a combination of brain damage and a chemical released into blood during “resurrection.”

Cambodian officials say that the outbreak has been contained and the public has no need to worry.

General Ary Serey had this to say, "We have obtained samples of this new virus and plan to learn how it starts the heart and other major organs of the deceased. We intend to use this to increase the quality of life for all."

US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice opposed the plan saying that the Cambodian government holds a great biological weapon and should destroy it immediately. Cambodian officials have yet to comment.

A United Nations team will be dispatched to Cambodia to confirm the safety of biological research in Cambodia.

Nevermind, I think it's a hoax, I can't find anything to corraborate it and I can't find it on the BBC via the search feature.


Scary though.

The fact that I received this "news" story from three genuinely frightened people today finally explains how Bush got reelected.

Even if it was true, zombies are slow and easy to kill.

No no no, offend, please. What a re-re I am:mad:

The sad thing is, I'm kind of disappointed that there aren't really zombies, I had my hopes up.

Malaria is caused by the eukaryotic parasite Plasmodium (vivax, falciparum and a few other species I don't remember off the top of my head), it basically sets up shop inside Red blood cells chowing down on hemoglobin, and then infects the liver...nothing about it is viral, or affects the nervous system (or even produces neurotransmitters)

I've seen some national geographic stuff about it, very creepy if you ask me

I felt the same thing. I was hoping for zombies, especially zombies with a two hour shelf life just in case they got out of control.

Not to mention the amount of "disaster movies" Hollywood could whip up to let us Americanos in on the action.

I like to think that implies the use of flamethrowers... a whole shiteload of flamethrowers........ maybe I'm just really destructive like that...

You raised my hopes and then dashed them expertly, sir. Good show!

Great minds think alike. As soon as I read the (hoax though it may be) article I reached for my Zombie Survival Guide. It's only a comedic book when zombies aren't attacking and eating the brains of the living.

Yeah, anyone else notice that the website it's from isn't even on the BBC's server?

You would think people would notice the picture that says "Welcome To Anjar" (which is in Lebanon) when the "zombie plague" supposedly happened in a place called Quan' sul (if the place even exists) :)

"Man, they really love that word... it must mean, like, free beer, or something."

Well, it is slavery is what it is. I just find it interesting that something that 90% of the industrialized world considers a fantasy has an actual basis in fact.
