General view on Dec. 4, 2013 of the place in Tepojaco, Hidalgo state where the Volkswagen Worker truck transporting a 'teletherapy source' containing cobalt-60 was stolen by gunmen on Dec. 2. Mexican authorities scrambled Wednesday to find a truck containing 'extremely dangerous' radioactive material used in medical treatment. Mexico's National Commission for Nuclear Safety and Safeguards (CNSNS), which reported the theft to the IAEA, said the material posed no risk provided it was not broken or tampered with.
