U.S. Installing Nuclear Detectors in Singapore

Reuters reports here
The U.S. government will install radiation detectors in Singapore's busy port to prevent the smuggling of ingredients for dirty nuclear bombs, U.S. officials said on Thursday.

Singapore, a close ally in the U.S.-led war on terrorism, is the first Southeast Asian nation to join Washington's "MegaPorts" security initiative which also covers the Bahamas, Belgium, Greece, the Netherlands, Sri Lanka and Spain.
