    Default Leaked Nuclear Material Spikes across Europe - Authorities "Have Withheld Info for Days"

    A disturbing if vague report - Iodine 131 has been found in unspecified 'spikes' across Europe.

    Could be a military test, a provocation of some kind, or a dirty bomb event ?

    There was a fire in a nuclear plant in France last week, but no apparent connection.

    Not saying this is related, just FYI.

    Couple of weeks ago NYT reported that Russia secretly moved and entire "battalion" of banned since 87, nuclear capable cruise missiles, off their test base between the Black and Caspian seas to a location not disclosed. I doubt they went east. Accidents always a heightened concern during transport.

    Indeed. How many people knew in 1983 how very close they were to a rather big accident ?

    There are so many different things that could have caused this.

    An event, or an non-event ?

    There has been a US nuclear 'sniffer plane' checking Europe out in the last few days.

    Hard to know if Ireland is unaffected, or whether our dopy Radiological Protection set up is lying dormant.

    Medical leakage seems the most probably source -
