Author­i­ties raised the alarm af­ter ra­dioac­tive waste was de­tected on a truck near Athens, the En­vi­ron­ment Min­istry said yesterday. The min­istry said it was in­formed on Sun­day that a con­tainer trans­port­ing waste from the VIOPA in­dus­trial park in Ker­atea, east­ern At­tica, to the land­fill at Fyli, west of Athens, was emit­ting ra­dioac­tive io­dine, picked up by sen­sors at the land­fill. The truck was not al­lowed to un­load the waste, and was in­stead or­dered to re­turn to Ker­atea. En­vi­ron­ment in­spec­tors said yesterday there was no danger to pub­lic health.
