Militants seize nuclear materials in Iraq

  • Militants in Iraq have seized nuclear materials from university facilities near Mosul city, but American officials said the seizure was of minimal concern as they were not weapons-grade or enriched uranium.

    In a letter to the UN, Iraq’s ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim said that “terrorist groups” had seized around 40 kilograms of uranium compounds at University of Mosul’s science departments after Sunni militant groups led by Isis took control of the area.
