A chemical factory , Bombed 6 years ago by Russian forces has been discovered to be riddled with radioactive contaminants .
The factory in Grozny , capital of the war torn former Soviet republic has radiation levels almost 50% of those at Chenobyl
Russian authorities are investifgating , amid fears that illegal munitions may have been manufactured at the site .

this is a breaking story
16 December 2005 -- Russian authorities say a criminal investigation has been launched into a case of radioactive pollution discovered at a chemical plant in Grozny, the capital of the Northern Caucasus republic of Chechnya.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

A very bizarre case , which begs the question . What was the source? I doubt the Russians would be stupid enough to use contaminated bombs , but were the Chechens using the factory for illicit bomb making programs?
The site is listed as a " chemical factory " , but if there was a legitimate sorce of radioactive materials at the site , this would be mentioned , yes ?

The BBC have now picked up the story , and have a little more information at this link :
