Greenpeace scientist Dr. Rianne Teule measures radioactive levels of a device from the nearby Tuwaitha nuclear facility. The device, abandoned on a roadside, contains yellow powder that is 1000 times background levels of radiation.

 

We are calling for a full assessment of the situation at Tuwaitha and other nuclear sites in Iraq. Find out what we discovered on our trip in June and July 2003.

One member of the Iraq team writes, "How do you tell someone they can't stay in their own home anymore? How do you look someone in the eye when you know that what little they have, they should abandon, even though they have nowhere else to go? We had to do that today. Another day looking for nightmares, another day finding them..."
