The news goes from bad to worse. Security services have long feared that jihadis might get their hands on radioactive material.
Police in Belgium found roughly 10 hours of surveillance video in the possession of a suspect in the Paris terror attacks. It shows surveillance of a Belgian nuclear worker.
What was their plan? We know ISIS is trying to develop a dirty bomb. They need radioactive material.
“Belgian terror search finds video linked to nuclear official,” AP, February 17, 2016:
BRUSSELS (AP) — Belgian authorities say that searches in the wake of last year’s deadly attacks in Paris have uncovered video linked to a person working in Belgium’s nuclear industry.
The federal prosecutor’s office said in a statement on Wednesday that an “investigation is actively ongoing.”
Belgian media reported that several hours of video was filmed near the home of a man thought to be a senior official at the Mol nuclear waste facility in the Flanders region. The house of the unidentified man was apparently filmed from a nearby wood.
Prosecutors declined to confirm that information or provide details.
Security services have long feared that extremists might get their hands on radioactive material.
It comes as a cloud hangs over some Belgium’s nuclear plants after a number of unplanned shutdowns.
