Missing Radioactive Material Located

By John Lee.

Radioactive material that went missing in Iraq in November has been found, apparently undamaged, on Sunday near a patrol station in Zubair.

The chief of the security panel at the Basra Provincial Council told Reuters:

“A passer-by found the radioactive device dumped in Zubair and immediately informed security forces which went with a special radiation prevention team and retrieved the device.

“After initial checking I can confirm the device is intact 100 percent and there is absolutely no concern of radiation.”
