Islamic State stole nuclear material, may be developing a ‘dirty bomb’

The Islamic State may be building a crude nuclear weapon sometimes called a dirty bomb using radioactive uranium stolen from Iraq’s Mosul University in June, according to a story in The Mirror, reports Mark Ellis, Senior Correspondent, ASSIST News Service.

Members of the terror group bragged about constructing such a weapon on Twitter, even assessing the destructive potential of using such a weapon in London, according to the report.

A dirty bomb is a rudimentary nuclear weapon that combines radioactive material with conventional explosives. The purpose of the device is to contaminate the area around the explosion with radioactive material, wreaking havoc in densely populated urban environments.

Iraq’s UN ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim confirmed the theft of the radioactive material in a letter dated July 8 sent to UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon.

“Terrorist groups have seized control of nuclear material at the sites that came out of the control of the (Iraqi) state,” Alhakim stated in the letter.

One of the extremists who made the Twitter threats is a British-trained explosives expert, Hamayun Tariq, who became radicalized and left his home in the UK for the Middle East in 2012.

Using a creative alias – “Muslim-al-Britani,” he tweeted, “O by the way, Islamic State does have a dirty bomb. We found some radioactive material from Mosul University. We’ll find out what dirty bombs are and what they do. We’ll also discuss what might happen if one actually went off in a public area.”
