Russia says seized radioactive material en route to Iran
MOSCOW (Reuters) – The Russian customs service said on Friday it had seized radioactive material found in the luggage of a passenger bound for Tehran at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo international airport.
The service said in a statement that tests showed the material was a radioactive isotope which could be obtained only “as a result of a nuclear reactor’s operations.”
