British police said on Tuesday they had opened an investigation into a package of uranium seized at London’s Heathrow Airport. The package was discovered on Dec 29 by border agents during a routine search, police said. The package came from Pakistan and arrived on a flight from Oman, a report said. The uranium was found in a scrap shipment and investigators are investigating whether it was the result of “mishandling” in Pakistan.
