Islamic State terrorists are feared to have obtained ‘highly dangerous’ radioactive material that could be used as a weapon in their war against the West.
The Iraqi government is searching for the material, stored in a protective case the size of a laptop, after it was stolen in November from a storage facility near the southern city of Basra.
It is said to have belonged to U.S. oilfield services company Weatherford and utilizes gamma rays to test flaws in materials in oil and gas pipelines.
Officials fear it could be used to make a so-called ‘dirty bomb’ – a device that combines nuclear material with conventional explosives to contaminate an area with deadly radiation.
In comparison, a nuclear weapon uses nuclear fission technology to trigger a vastly more powerful blast.
