Honduras authorities have found strong traces of radioactive material in a Hong Kong-bound shipping container carrying steel debris from an Atlantic coast port, officials said on Monday.

During a security scan on Sunday, officials detected high readings of radioactivity emanating from the container at the Puerto Cortes port, 115 miles north of Honduras' capital, Tegucigalpa.

Don't mean to "fear-monger" people here -- it could of come from a hospital and also could be dirty bomb material.

Does not really matter where it came from. Any radioactive material can be used in a dirty bomb. However I have not heard of Hong Kong being any safe haven for terrorists. So at this time I think the actual threat is low. Will wait to see if anything else becomes of this.
