Uranium Seized in Colombia

This is kind of scary:

Two Colombians caught trying to sell uranium might have tried to offer it to Marxist rebels but the metal was depleted and unsuitable for making a nuclear or dirty bomb, according to a preliminary government report and the Attorney General's office on Thursday.

Soldiers and police arrested a man and a woman in an industrial neighborhood of the capital Bogota on Feb. 24 and seized 29.7 pounds (13.5 kg) of uranium sitting on a lead base beneath polystyrene foam containers full of water and ice, according to a news release by the Attorney General's office.
