Vienna - The UN nuclear agency warned on Thursday that the case of a Russian man who allegedly tried to sell a small amount of weapons-grade uranium could be a sign of wider availability of such dangerous material.
The New York Times reported on Wednesday that Georgia had sentenced a Russian man to eight and a half years in prison for trying to sell 100g of highly enriched uranium (HEU) in January 2005.
The International Atomic Energy Agency "is aware of the case and expects formal notification from Georgian authorities soon", IAEA spokesperson Melissa Fleming said.

Weapons-grade uranium seized
As if this is suprising. Too bad they didn't find any in Iraq, eh? Couldn't these guys just plant some by now? They've been over there long enough. I guess we should be grateful of the honesty over there at least.
