Three Nabbed Trying to Sell Radioactive Material

This is rather disturbing.

Slovakia arrests 3 in nuclear material case
BRATISLAVA, Slovakia - Police said Wednesday three people have been arrested for attempting to sell a small amount of an unspecified nuclear material.

Police spokesman Martin Korch said specialists were examining the radioactive material seized in Slovakia. He said the three allegedly planned a deal to sell the material, which weighs a kilo, or 2.2 pounds, for $1 million. Two of the suspects were arrested in eastern Slovakia, the other in Hungary.

Don't doubt for a second our enemies aren't trying to procure such material wherever they can.

H/T lawhawk.
