88 pounds of Uranium was stolen from a lab in Iraq by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The material is not believed to be weaponized and ISIS does not have known missile delivery capability. The theft has increased fears that the group will use the material to attack Baghdad with a dirty bomb — a primitive radioactive bomb.
