Norway probes illegal nuclear sales
Inside the Halden Reactor - Institute for Energy Technology

Norway's intelligence services have launched a probe into the country's Halden Nuclear Reactor, after revelations that it illegally supplied nuclear fuel to companies in Brazil, Russia, Argentina, France and the United states.


"I can confirm that we have launched an investigation," Martin Bernsen, chief of Norway's Police Security Service (PST) told VG. 
The Institute for Energy Technology, which administers the reactor, has admitted to making sales of nuclear material in contravention of Norway's export controls.
