(London Daily Mail) A truck that contained highly radioactive material that could be used by terrorists to create a ‘dirty bomb’ has been found abandoned, close to where it was stolen.

The highly radioactive material was found in an empty parking lot about a kilometer from Hueypoxtla, a small farming town of about 4,000 people.

Worryingly, authorities located 40 grams of Cobalt-60 about a half-mile away from the truck’s container, according to Juan Eibenschutz, director of the Mexican Nuclear Agency.
