International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA), U.N’s nuclear agency, head Yukiya Amano warned that there is a danger of nuclear material falling into terrorist hands.

He urged nations to apply an agreement meant to minimize such dangers, foreign media said.

Talking about the issue on Monday he said that 11 more nations must agree to adhere to the Amendment to the Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Material.

He said this move would reduce the risk of terrorists detonate a ‘dirty bomb’.

Since 1995, he said, nearly 2,800 incidents of radioactive material going missing have been reported to the IAEA.
