Suspected radioactive packages found in Scottish building

Authorities sealed off a building in Edinburgh, Scotland, on Wednesday night after finding three packages inside that might contain radioactive material, an official said. Firefighters and police placed a cordon around the three-story Regent Language Training School at about 7 p.m. (1900 GMT), said Jim Fraser, a group manager with the Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue Service. The small packages were found in a cupboard as it was being cleaned and warnings printed on them indicated they contained radioactive materials, he said in an interview with The Associated Press. However, officials did not know what the packages contained and whether it was radioactive, he said.
