A top Interpol official Thursday appealed to the international community for more funding so the agency can adequately combat nuclear terrorism. The international crime-fighting agency operates on an annual budget of about $70 million (€52.6 million), not enough money to implement all the necessary programs to battle terrorism, said David Gork, Interpol's director of specialized crime and analysis. "It's ludicrous, but again it comes down to the member countries providing the funding to support us," Gork said during a nuclear terrorism conference. "We are not being given sufficient resources to be able to do it." Gork did not name specific countries that needed to pay more, but called on the West to increase funding for training programs.
