Loose Nukes

Nuclear No reports that the Russian government intercepted 120 attempts to smuggle out radioactive material. Interestingly there were over 700 attempts (known) to smuggle radioactive stuff into the country. As the Telegraph puts it:

"The disclosure is likely to fuel concern about how many illegal exports were not halted. It will also lead to new fears that Moscow has failed to stop material becoming available on the black market that could be used by terrorists to make radioactive "dirty" bombs."
