Mexican authorities found a stolen medical device containing dangerous radioactive material outside the truck that was carrying it north of Mexico City, threatening the life of those who touched it, officials said.
As investigators groped for clues
to find the source of Cobalt-60 that created panic in West

owner of the scrap shop from where it was found to get more clarity.
