If someone was carrying 5 ounces of uranium wouldn't you still expect the Turkish authorities to hold them? Anyway, the case of incredibly shrinking uranium has taken a couple of odd turns:
Turkish officials announced Saturday they had seized a box filled with nearly 35 pounds (15 kilograms) of uranium. But Muzaffer Dilek, the mayor of Sanliurfa, a Turkish city near the Turkey-Syria border, said Sunday that the material amounted to only 140 grams -- about five ounces.
The two men arrested with the material were released due to lack of evidence and have since disappeared, Dilek said.
