Nuclear Suitcase Intercepted at Port of Calais

It doesn't get anymore frightening than this. Actually I suppose that it can. Today, my colleagues in the U.K. intercepted a Pakistani national trying to board a HoverSpeed boat bound for Dover from Calais. The man had been tracked since entering France by car from Germany. Inside one of his suitcases was one of the Soviet-era suitcases purchased by al-Qaeda in Moldova. The SN on the device matches that from the Soviet army manifest which includes the remaining devices that are in Albania. This will not be seen in the media as it was classified a "drug-related incident" by U.K. and French police at Interpol's request.
