Uranium sold in Turkey - 9 November, 2001 - News

Two men arrested in Istanbul for selling weapons-grade uranium claim the source was a Russian.

The men claim to have bought the kilogram of uranium from a Russian man some months before. Examinations on the substance show that it is enriched, weapons-grade uranium.

Undercover agents had been tracking the men, who were arrested at the moment they attempted to sell it for 750,000 USD.

In a similar incident in August, 6 people were arrested for selling nuclear substances. These incidents give rise to fears that Al Qaeda could already have obtained nuclear material in the same way.
