Secret nuclear convoy reaches Russia

10:45 am on 24 December 2010

A secret convoy transporting weapons-grade nuclear material across Europe has arrived at its final destination in Russia.

The 13 kilograms of highly enriched uranium were loaded onto trucks at a decommissioned nuclear reactor in Serbia a month ago.

The load also included 8000 spent fuel rods.

John Kelly of the International Atomic Energy Agency says terrorists would have found them ideal for dirty bombs.
