Viet Nam Claims Huge Seizures of US Uranium

On 13 September, Viet Nam's Atomic Energy Commission announced that, since 1993, a special unit had confiscated 591 pounds of depleted uranium osmium and 1,136 tons of low-grade uranium. According to the Commission's Director, Nguyen Tien Nguyen, the process of confiscating the sub-weapons-grade material, apparently left behind by the United States, is now complete, and the unit is to be disbanded. The details of the confiscations had been reported, Nguyen added, to the International Atomic Energy Agency.
