Armed gunmen attack nuclear facility in S.A. November 12, 2007

Posted by Al in : scary , trackback

I don’t normally blog current affair style stories, as they date almost instantly, but this story worries me slightly. Why would anyone want to break into a nuclear facility and enter the control room? I can understand that theft of nuclear materiel may be a viable means of turning a pretty profit, but the control room would normally control the operation of the plant, and so would not be the first port of call for most thieves. I’d hate to think that extremists, of whatever persuasion, are not starting to target nuclear facilities. It’s also rather worrying for the South African government that these attackers were able to get inside a supposedly secure facility.
