    The entire population of Belgium is to be issued with a ration of iodine tablets, months after warnings about the threat of Isil building a dirty bomb. Iodine pills, which help reduce radiation build-up in the thyroid gland, had previously only been issued to people living within 20km (14 miles) of the Tihange and Doel nuclear plants. Maggie De Block, the Health Minister, said that would be extended to 100km, covering the whole country of 11 million people, following advice from an expert council. The pills will be sent to pharmacies, and the public would be ordered to collect their...

    Earlier this year, authorities found a tape with 12 hours of mysterious footage as the result of an anti-terrorism raid in Brussels. The hours of tape revealed that someone was spying on Belgium’s nuclear power chief, which led authorities to believe that the terrorist cell was likely planning on attacking a nuclear power plant or retrieving nuclear material to build a dirty bomb. It looks like they were right. Belgium is currently on “high alert” after authorities found a nuclear power plant security officer dead with his pass missing. The concerning development, which occurred on Thursday but was only reported...

    CHISINAU, Moldova — Over the pulsating beat at an exclusive nightclub, the arms smuggler made his pitch to a client: 2.5 million euros for enough radioactive cesium to contaminate several city blocks. It was earlier this year, and the two men were plotting their deal at an unlikely spot: the terrace of Cocos Prive, a dance club and sushi bar in Chisinau, the capital of Moldova. “You can make a dirty bomb, which would be perfect for the Islamic State,” the smuggler said. “If you have a connection with them, the business will go smoothly.” But the smuggler, Valentin Grossu,...

    The Islamic State (ISIS) militants claimed on Twitter that they had the 'dirty bomb' and had 'terror' plans for London, confirming fears raised by the United Nations(UN) back in July. Several ISIS affiliate accounts made the claim in the last few days that the militant group had the capacity to make the ' Bomb' using 40kg of Uranium that the group 'stole' from the Mosul University some four months ago. The details of the 'dirty bomb' emerged recently after the ISIS fighters boasted on Twitter of the chaos they could wreck in London. A "dirty bomb" is a type of...

    A GANG of British terror suspects has been charged with plotting to launch a "dirty bomb" or mini nuclear blast on London. The attacks, on targets such as Heathrow and the Parliament, were planned to coincide with similar strikes on major buildings in the US. The leader of the group is believed to be Osama bin Laden's UK general, Dhiren Barot. Born into a respected family of Kenyan expatriates, Barot, 32, was raised a Hindu before being converted to radical Islamism in his 20s and becoming one of al-Qaida's European linchpins. Barot and seven other members of the suspected al-Qaida...

    Extreme Islamist group ISIS have seized 90lb (40kg) of radioactive uranium in Iraq which could be used to make a dirty bomb. The Times reports that the militants seized the material after overrunning a university in the city of Mosul, which they captured last month. Iraq's ambassador to the UN has now appealed to the international community for help to "stave off the threat of their use by terrorists in Iraq and abroad." This is believed to be the first time that an Islamist terror group has been able to obtain such a large quantity of radioactive material, and security...

    Countries in Africa and the Middle East are a greater threat than old nuclear facilities in former Soviet republics as sources of material for a “dirty bomb,” US officials say. “In north Africa and the Middle East you have terrorist organizations, unstable governments, in some cases actual civil conflict and lack of control over sovereign territory. In the former Soviet Union we still have remaining challenges, but we are dealing with relatively stable governments with which we have a history of engagement,” Simon Limage, a non-proliferation specialist at the US state department, told EUobserver. His colleague in the US department...

    ADOLF HITLER'S PLOT TO BOMB NEW YORK Newly discovered papers reveal the Nazis’ most bizarre plan – sending manned rockets into space to attack America. The head of the Luftwaffe Hermann Goering banged his fi st on the table in anger. He needed a dynamic new scheme to catch the Fuhrer’s eye. In the warped world of the Third Reich, competition between the German army and the German air force – the Luftwaffe – was fierce. Under Adolf Hitler’s power-crazed dictatorial leadership senior Nazis vied and tussled for infl uence throughout the Second World War. At the end of 1941,...

    BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) - A single laptop can reveal much, and so it is with the digital treasure chest that Colombian commandos found in the jungle quarters of slain rebel leader Raul Reyes. Files in the computer seized in Saturday's raid into Ecuador that claimed the lives of Reyes and 23 of his comrades offer an intimate portrait of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's desire to undermine Colombia's U.S.-allied government. If authentic, the documents show that sympathies Chavez first aired publicly in January grew out of a relationship that dates back more than a decade. But Chavez is not one of...

    A port official has admitted that a 'weapon of mass effect' has been found by 'partner agencies' in the U.S., raising major questions over a possible government cover-up.

    Homeland Security: An assistant port director says "weapons of mass effect" have been found on American soil, possibly smuggled in across our porous border. The drug war in Mexico may be the least of our worries. Doing the job the so-called mainstream American media won't do, Britain's Daily Telegraph recently reported that, according to WikiLeaks documents, a gift that seems to keep on giving, U.S. officials were warned years ago that al-Qaida could build a dirty bomb capable of doing great damage to an American city. Now another British paper, the Daily Mail, reports on a televised interview by San...

    A top Egyptian security official is warning he expects "a wave of Islamic terror attacks against the country, planned and prepared outside of Egypt," according to G2 Bulletin's intelligence sources. The terror threat in Egypt is being taken so seriously among western and Israeli intelligence agencies that they are actively considering the possibility of the fall of President Hosni Mubarak's regime and pondering what might become of Cairo's weapons of mass destruction in such an eventuality. During a special session of the People's Assembly, Egyptian Minister of the Interior Habib al-Adeli reportedly told legislators that his assessment is based on...
