This undated photo provided by the Georgia Interior Ministry shows an 84-pound lead vessel which contained radioactive cesium-137. Police said they seized the materials from a Georgian citizen in Zugdidi, Georgia on Nov. 2, 2007. Georgia’s proximity to the large stockpiles of Cold War-era nuclear material, its position along trade routes to Asia and Europe, the roughly 225 miles (360 kilometers) of unsecured borders of its two breakaway republics, South Ossetia and Abkhazia, and the poverty of the region may explain why the nation of 4.5 million has become a transit point for nuclear material.
