Fate of Libya's 'Yellowcake' Uranium Still in the Air

Libya still has not decided what to do with uranium ore concentrate amassed under its late dictator, Agence France-Presse reported on Monday.

The country was reportedly holding 6,400 barrels of the "yellowcake" uranium at a warehouse in Sabha.

 

Foreign Minister Muhammad Abdul Aziz said his country "is trying to determine if the concentrated uranium can be used for peaceful nuclear energy purposes or sold to countries which use the product for peaceful purposes."

An independent think tank in Tripoli, though, has reportedly advised the government to use the material in its nascent nuclear-power program, as well as for "industrial and agricultural development."
