IAEA Finds Nuke Material In Syria
LONDON [MENL] -- The International Atomic Energy Agency has found traces of
processed uranium in Syria.
The United Nations agency said inspectors discovered uranium and
graphite at a bombed site in Al Kibar, in the desert in northeastern Syria.
The report did not determine whether the graphite, used in the construction
of nuclear reactors, was nuclear-grade.
"It's not simple contamination by somebody who spent the day at some
nuclear facility somewhere and then went to Al Kibar," a senior agency
official said. "It's nuclear material that hasn't been declared and Syria
has to explain."
