MEXICO CITY (AP)

Mexico’s nuclear safety director says a stolen container of radioactive material has been found empty.

Juan Eibenschutz says radioactivity has been detected about 1 kilometer (a half mile) from where the stolen truck and empty container were found in the state of Mexico.

He says authorities have cordoned off the area.

OH BOY, the drug wars are going nuclear.

It is only a matter of time before some criminal get possession of something as dangerous as nuclear material.

The damaging possibilities are enormous even for a nuclear novice.

Let's hope that the radiation can be detected and the material recovered.
