Security camera sees person carrying away a 50 pound container of nuke material

9 April 2008: A radioactive substance that can be used to make a dirty bomb has been stolen in Japan, police and officials said on Tuesday, warning the public not to go near it.

A sealed metal container holding a small amount of iridium 192 was stolen on Monday from the office near Tokyo of a company that inspects industrial products, police said.

Iridium 192 is commonly used in cancer radiation treatment but it is also cited in scenarios by anti-terrorism investigators as an ingredient for a makeshift nuclear bomb.
