Yellowcake Goes To Canada

550 metric tonnes of yellowcake (concentrated natural uranium), the last vestige of Saddam Hussein's nuclear program, arrived in Canada on Saturday.

The shipment removed the risk of it being used by insurgents and smugglers crossing to Iran.

Yellowcake can be enriched for use in reactors and, at higher levels, nuclear weapons using sophisticated equipment.
