Safety :

  • NUCLEAR TERRORISM :

    • US President Barack Obama warns of nuclear terrorism
      "Speaking on the eve of a nuclear security summit in Washington, he said leaders from 40 states should focus on how to secure nuclear material...
      Neither North Korea and Iran, two states with disputed nuclear ambitions, have been invited to the summit...
      Syria was also left off the invitation list...
      But the leaders of nuclear states like India, China and Pakistan are among those coming to Washington for the biggest gathering of
      world leaders in the US capital in decades...
      Leaders or other representatives of 47 states are attending the summit."
