‘Islamic State’ terror group plotting to use drones for nuclear attack on West

Isis terrorists are planning to use drones to spray nuclear material over Western cities in a horrific “dirty bomb” attack, David Cameron has warned.

World leaders are concerned that  jihadists want to buy basic drones that are widely available online to transport radioactive material into the heart of major cities in a strike that could kill thousands.

The UK Prime Minister warned that the dangers of the so-called ‘Islamic State’ terror group getting hold of nuclear material was “only too real”. Mr Cameron on Friday met world leaders, including the presidents of America, France and China, to plan how they would react to such an attack.

Footage has reportedly emerged showing Isil using drones and the threat was deemed so serious that – in a highly unusual move – world leaders were asked to take part in war games to plan how they would respond.

One scenario, mapped out by US officials and presented at the special Nuclear Security Summit session in Washington DC, spelt out the danger in remarkable detail.

Isis is believed to have seized around 90 pounds of low grade uranium from Mosul University in Iraq after taking over the city in 2014, though its limited toxicity means its use would likely cause panic than serious harm.

In Europe, fears have also been raised by apparent attempts to infiltrate nuclear facilities. Cameron told journalists in Washington DC that concerns over a radioactive attack were real.
