Here is a link to the story. PBS Article More information can be found with a little searching.
Through other sources I have found that this deal involved the Russian Mafiya, a Red mobster who had already brokered the sale of Russian military helicopters to drug runners as well as the sale of a Russian Submarine including its captain and 17 man crew.
The sale of weapons grade nuclear material and entire weapons is not only going on, but so much so that several government have busted more than a dozen sales of plutonium. Entire bombs have been up for sale on the black market originating from corupt former soviet bloc weapons manufacturers.
