Radioactive uranium and cesium worth 3.1 million euros ($4.9 million) has been seized in Ukraine. It was found in a car with two suspects. Since one of the men apparently worked for the Ukrainian embassy in Germany, I guess it could have been bound for Germany. But of course, it could've been bound for any country...

Ukraine Embassy Worker Arrested for Radioactive Smuggling


According to reports, the two suspects had been transporting uranium and cesium in an automobile.

The confiscated radioactive elements were believed to have been removed from a special holding facility in the Ukrainian capital Kiev for sale to an organized crime group, according to the report.

The police did not make clear where the pair intended to transfer the materials.

What do criminal groups want radioactive materials for? Making bombs? Poison? Blackmail? Whatever it is, it can't be good...
