Belgian nuclear officials have cancelled an order to the US for 144 kg of bomb grade Uranium amid fears that Isis could try to use the material for a nuclear attack, according to Udo Ulfkotte.
The uranium, destined for the Belgian Reactor 2 (BR-2) in Mol, would have been enough to fuel the reactor for five years or make several nuclear weapons. A video was found in November 30th 2015 showing that a nuclear official at Mol had been under surveillance by suspected Islamic terrorists.
The way terrorists appear to be targeting four Belgian’s nuclear facilities highlights the inadequacy of their security, protected by a private security guards.
Unlike French nuclear reactors, which are protected by the military and police, Belgian’s nuclear sites are guarded by G4S, a controversial private security company headquartered in the UK.
Following the Brussels terror attacks, the Belgium government has deployed 140 soldiers to guard nuclear sites.
But fears have been voiced by Le Monde that the real threat could be from sabotage by an insider or by intruders.
The murder of a G4S security officer, who had access passes to all four of Belgium’s nuclear sites according to media, underscores the danger of terrorists obtaining access to vital parts of a nuclear facility and stealing, sabotaging or detonating highly enriched uranium.
Eleven employees of Belgium’s two nuclear power plants at Doel and Tihange have had their access blocked since the Brussels terror attack. It is not clear if any of them worked for G4S since their details have not been revealed by the Belgium nuclear regulatory agency.
Four of the people who had their authorization removed on Thursday worked for the nuclear power plant at Tihange.
Two employees at the Doel nuclear plant have been linked to Islamic terrorist associatons and Sharia4Belgium. One, Ilyass Boughalab, worked for three years at Doel before leaving for Syria to join iihadis.
G4S took over the fire protection service of Tihange in July 2015. In December there was a fire in the nuclear reactor.
In August 2014, an act of sabotage in Doel damaged the turbine and forced the reactor to be shut down.
There are several ways that terrorists might attack nuclear facilities, especially if personnel inside were complicit.
A stand down by security and insider sabotage is believed to have been a major element in false flag operations such as 9 11.
They could detonate a bomb in a nuclear plant and blow it up to release radiation
They could break in to a nuclear plant and build and detonate a “dirty bomb” a mixture of conventional explosive and radioactive material. They could also use conventional explosives to blow up nuclear fuel or waste, to release radiation.
