IAEA confirms almost all missing uranium in Libya now accounted for

Most of the roughly 2.5 tons of natural uranium ore concentrate (UOC) recently declared missing from a site in Libya has been found at that site, the UN nuclear watchdog told member states on Friday in a statement seen by Reuters.

Following up on eastern Libyan forces' statement last week that they had found the drums of UOC near the warehouse they were taken from in southern Libya, the International Atomic Energy Agency carried out an inspection and found that only "a relatively small amount of UOC was still unaccounted for," the confidential statement to member states said.
