Radioactive Material Found

    A picture taken on November 22, 2011 shows a radioactivity warning symbol on a "CASTOR" (Cask for Storage and Transportation of Radioactive Material) container carrying highly radioactive nuclear waste which is part of a convoy waiting at the Areva's train station in Valognes, northwestern France, a day before leaving for Gorleben in Germany. Despite massive police forces deployment, anti-nuclear protests are expected in France and Germany against the transport of the eleven so-called "CASTORS" containing nuclear waste.

    The United Nations issued a warning Wednesday after a truck carrying cobalt-60, dangerous radioactive material that could be used for a dirty bomb, was stolen in Mexico. The vehicle was carrying the radioactive material, which is used for radiotherapy to treat cancer, from a hospital to a storage center. Authorities later found the stolen material about 1 km from its container in Mexico, according to officials.
