Another radioactive device has been stolen from a workshop at Bobovdol coal-fired thermal power station. The signal has been received at 5 p.m. on November 5. The device that went missing contained Caesium-137 and Americium-241, each in a separate 45-kilogram container. The theft comes a day after two devices, containing radioactive materials, were stolen from Kremikovtzi steel plant near Sofia. The level of radioactivity of the materials is 1,000 times lower in comparison with those in the devices stolen from Kremikovtzi. Experts assured they cannot be lethal, nor can they lead to serious deceases. The devices, installed in measurement equipment in Kremikovtzi, were dismantled and stolen without the protective containers. The two measurement devices that went missing contained Caesium-137. The thieves are being tracked down by a special unit.Politics » Be a reporter: Write and send your article Expats.bg All Are Welcome! Join Now!
