An international project is underway to move radioactive substances into secure facilities and prevent them from ending up in the hands of terrorists.

A convoy of nuclear material has arrived at a secure facility in Russia after an extensive journey by road, rail and ship from Serbia.

The details of the shipment and the route had to be kept secret until the material reached its destination.
