August 2005 (RFE/RL) --


The Turkish news agency Anatolia today reported that police have arrested and charged two people with attempting to smuggle nuclear materials after they were allegedly found trying to sell 173 grams of enriched uranium smuggled from Russia.


Anatolia quoted a statement released by customs police as saying the two men were arrested in the Istanbul suburb of Harem trying to sell the enriched uranium to undercover police officers for $7 million.

The men were later charged with smuggling nuclear materials.

Anatolia said that investigations by the Turkish Nuclear Energy Agency found that the enriched uranium was of medium-grade.
