China is missing some uranium and they have no idea where it has gone.
Seventeen pounds of highly radioactive uranium was stolen in an attempt to resell the deadly element on the black market.
Four Chinese citizens have been charged with an attempt to sell enriched uranium between 2005 and 2007. The men were arrested in January after a potential buyer turned them in to the Chinese police.

17 pounds is enough for a dirty bomb - probably - but hardly enough for a "real" bomb. Put it together with the 100s of pounds gone missing from Russian stocks, there is enough out there to make a "botleg" nuclear bomb.
Great find, btw.
