Dumbasses

Via Chris Bodenner, stupid is as stupid does:

The disease, which struck Europe in the Middle Ages killing more than 25 million people, has swept through a training camp for insurgents in Algeria.

The arrival of the plague was discovered when security forces found the body of a dead terrorist by a roadside, the Sun reports.

The victim belonged to the large al-Qaeda network AQLIM (al-Qaeda in the Land of the Islamic Maghreb).

I don't celebrate death. But I can't say I'm mourning for people who died from the plague while studying how to infect people with the plague. I know I should be more empathetic but, I just don't have it  this time, folks.
