Slovak cops: Seized uranium is weapons-grade


3 allegedly sought to sell material, which apparently came from ex-USSR


BRATISLAVA, Slovakia – Two Hungarians and a Ukrainian arrested in an attempted sale of uranium were peddling material believed to be from the former Soviet Union, and it was enriched enough to be used in a radiological “dirty bomb,” police said Thursday.


The three men, who were arrested Wednesday in eastern Slovakia and Hungary, were trying to sell about a pound of uranium in powder form, said First Police Vice President Michal Kopcik.


“It was possible to use it in various ways for terrorist attacks,” Kopcik said.


Investigators were still working to determine who ultimately was trying to buy the uranium, which the three allegedly were selling for $1 million.
