Iraq rebels ‘seize nuclear materials’

More of Iraq’s non-existent WMD. But no worries, the U.N. nuclear agency says the nuclear material that the Islamic State seized when it overran the Iraqi city of Mosul is “low grade” and doesn’t pose “a significant safety, security or nuclear proliferation risk.” I hope they are right should these Muslim fighters decide to nuke the UN.

It’s only a matter of time: these dhimmi clowns will be the death of us all.

Iraq has warned the UN that Sunni militants have seized nuclear materials used for scientific research at a university in the city of Mosul.


In a letter seen by Reuters, Iraq’s envoy to the UN said nearly 40kg (88lb) of uranium compounds were seized.


The letter appealed for international help to “stave off the threat of their use by terrorists in Iraq or abroad”.


But the UN atomic agency IAEA said the material was “low grade” and did not pose a significant security risk.


US officials have also reportedly played down the threat, saying the materials were not believed to be enriched uranium.


They added that it would be difficult for the rebels to use the materials to make weapons.

Chemicals seized

“Terrorist groups have seized control of nuclear material at the sites that came out of the control of the state,” Ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim said in the letter.
