Mexico's nuclear safety director says workers have succeeded in safely removing a shipment of radioactive cobalt-60 that had sat in a cornfield for almost a week after being abandoned by thieves.
Juan Eibenschutz says a robot completed scooping up the dangerous material on Tuesday evening. He says the cobalt-60 was put in a safe container and is now being transported to a nuclear waste treatment facility.
The cobalt-60 was being carried in a truck that was stolen in central Mexico on December 2.
Authorities found the truck two days later with the shipping container empty. The radioactive material was then tracked down to the field near the truck.
Five people are being held as suspects in the case.
