Highly dangerous cargo discovered in London

Was confiscated uranium intended for a dirty bomb?

At the end of the year, a cargo of uranium was intercepted in London. The radioactive heavy metal came from Pakistan, addressed to Iranians. The British are on the hunt for them – and determine if the broadcast was intended for a dirty bomb.


At the end of December, a highly dangerous cargo of undeclared uranium was confiscated at London’s main airport, Heathrow.

British anti-terrorist units have confiscated kilos of uranium at London’s Heathrow airport. The cargo posted in Pakistan was addressed to Iranians in the kingdom. The metal is not highly enriched, weapons-grade uranium. However, it could have been used for a so-called dirty bomb, according to the authorities. A dirty bomb is a device with conventional explosives and radioactive material attached.

The investigators are currently chasing all possible leads, as “The Sun” reports exclusively. Special scanners had discovered the potentially deadly heavy metal and raised an alarm. Flight handler Swissport was just in the process of moving the freight to a goods depot.
