Nuclear Congo

As well as being a war-torn basket case of a country, Congo is also the proud possessor of a defunct nuclear plant where 98 bars of enriched uranium are currently being stored.

Don't worry though. Although the lack of any guards, and absence of perimeter security, means that people can just wander into the nuclear reactor facility, the room where the uranium is kept has a door with three locks on it.

on a similar vein, flew into Kinshasa, told "on no account take photos, military airport" by the steward.
I assumed the Dakota on milk crates was the military aircraft.....
