Radiation detectors set up at Ukrainian border

MACHINES that detect radioactive material are up and running at three border crossings between Slovakia and Ukraine.

The installation of the radiation detectors was announced in a statement from the National Nuclear Security Administration, the U.S. Embassy to Slovakia and the Customs Administration of Slovakia on October 29, the SITA newswire wrote.

"Slovakia and the United States are closely cooperating in an effort to stop smuggling of nuclear material," William Tobey of the nuclear organization said in the statement.
