Producer: Louise Potterton, Video Editor: Petr Pavlicek

SOURCE: IAEA
LANGUAGE: ENGLISH / NATS
DATELINE: April 2013, Manila, Philippines

After six years of preparation and six weeks to complete, a nuclear security operation to remove highly radioactive sources from disused medical devices in Manila has been successfully finalised. With the use of a specialised facility known as the "mobile hot cell" these sources were placed into two secure, long-term storage shields. The hot cell had been shipped to the Philippines from South Africa.
