Stolen Radioactive Material Found

Mexican authorities say they've found a stolen truck containing dangerous radioactive cobalt. The two thieves—who presumably were unaware of the vehicle's volatile contents—are still on the run, officials said. The truck was found 25 miles away from where it was taken, and the container holding the material had been opened. Authorities say they believe the suspects eventually will show up at a hospital with symptoms of radiation exposure.
