Ukraine catch man at airport with uranium

The man was detained at Boryspil airport, Ukraine’s main international gateway, with 582 grams of uranium. “SBU officers detained the person who was moving a case with a radioactive substance ãranium-238 — in his car,” the government said in a statement. It said ministry specialists had seized the case. A ministry official said an investigation had been launched. Depleted uranium, where uranium-238 is normally found, can theoretically be used to make nuclear “dirty bombs”, but it is often used in gun ammunition and armour because of its high density.
