Truck with radioactive material stolen

A pair of thieves in Mexico may have stolen more than they bargained for when they targeted a truck this week.

The stolen vehicle was carrying a delicate cargo - a radioactive element used for medical purposes, but one that can be used to make a so-called dirty bomb.

The International Atomic Energy Agency announced the theft Wednesday.

Mexican authorities told the IAEA that the truck, which was transporting the cobalt-60 teletherapy source from a hospital in Tijuana to a radioactive waste storage center, was stolen Monday in Tepojaco, near Mexico City.

Walker autopsy results coming

The Los Angeles County coroner's office expects to release some information from the autopsies of actor Paul Walker and financial manager Roger Rodas on Wednesday, the coroner's office told CNN.

The autopsies were completed Tuesday, but investigators placed a "security hold" on the results. The coroner's office did not give a reason for the secrecy.

The coroner has not publicly identified the two people killed in the crash, but the victims are widely known to be Walker and Rodas.

Four days after the crash that killed the two men, key questions remain unanswered.
