According to Reuters, who received the July 8 letter on Wednesday, Iraq’s U.N. Ambassador Mohammed Ali Al-Hakim sent a letter to the Secretary General of the U.N. Ban Ki-Moon stating that ISIS militants have seized 40 kg (88 pounds) of nuclear materials that were being held for scientific research at Mosul University.
’These nuclear materials, despite the limited amounts mentioned, can enable terrorist groups, with the availability of the required expertise, to use it separate or in combination with other materials in its terrorist acts,’ said Alhakim.
A number of US officials familiar with the situation stated that they do not fear a serious threat, as the amount obtained would be difficult for ISIS to manufacture weapons.
