WASHINGTON — A senior White House official said Friday that a historic Washington summit will seek new ways to stop terror groups like al-Qaida from building and detonating nuclear weapons.

White House officials told reporters the 47-nation Nuclear Security Summit, which begins Monday, will seek to strengthen international safeguards against the theft or purchase of bomb technology by criminals and terrorists.President Barack Obama has described nuclear terror as the largest single threat to global security.

"We know that terrorist groups, including al-Qaida, are pursuing the materials to build a nuclear weapon and we know that they have the intent to use one," said Ben Rhodes, a deputy national security adviser. "This of course would be a catastrophic danger to American national security and to global security, were they able to carry out that kind of attack."
