Nuc News just sent me an article with the following headline: "Police launch hunt for Stolen Uranium in India". What a coincidence! Even as we speak, I am sitting at an internet cafe on the main street of Jaipur, the capital of Rajastan. I'm on the case!

Looking out the door of my two-seater internet cafe, I see approximately 150 motor vehicles of various kinds, about 25 cycle-driven rickshaws, more people than you can possibly imagine, a whole bunch of trees and three sacred cows. Sorry. No missing uranium. But I'll keep my eye out. Thanks for the heads up!

PS: Here's the article from Nuc News:

Police launch hunt for stolen uranium in India

RANCHI: A container packed with radioactive material has been stolen from a fortified research facility in eastern India, prompting a major hunt and fears of contamination, officials said Saturday.

"It carries uranium and radiation and could have an adverse effect in an area of 1.5 kilometres" Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Khoda warned.

Khoda said the uranium was stolen nearly three weeks ago after being moved to a research site at the densely populated town of Rajrappa from a Federal Atomic Facility near Mumbai. The United States and India this month signed a landmark atomic energy deal to give India access to western technology and nuclear fuel, despite warnings from critics that demand tighter security measures to prevent proliferation.
