PACHUCA, Mexico (AP) -- Federal police blocked access Friday to a central Mexico hospital where six people were reported to have been admitted with radiation exposure.
An official familiar with the case confirmed Mexican media reports that the six have been admitted to the general hospital in the city of Pachuca and may have been exposed to a stolen source of cobalt-60.

I am actually curious if they knew what the heck it was that they stole? I always thought radioactive waste had an international symbol tacked to the side of it. What were they thinking lol.... assuming it is the culprits to the truck heist.
Associated Press WriterMEXICO CITY (AP) -- Mexico's defense department announced that 70 drums of sodium cyanide were found Wednesday near a dirt road in central Mexico -- apparently part of a stolen shipment of the highly poisonous chemical that officials have been seeking for 18 days.
Around 40 grams of cobalt-60 were found about half a mile from the abandoned lorry. It has not yet been revealed how much of the radioactive material remains missing.
