Seized in Russia

"Highly radioactive material" has been seized in Russia:

Security services seized two containers filled with highly radioactive material at a scrap yard in central Russia, Interfax news agency said.

Radiation levels at the scene in the town of Saratov, where the containers with uranium-238 were discovered, were 358 times higher than normal, Interfax said. Depleted uranium, where uranium-238 is usually found, theoretically can be used to make nuclear "dirty bombs."
