This June 24, 2012 photo shows the Hotel L Bakuri in Batumi, Georgia, on the Black Sea coast near the Turkish Border. In April 2012, three men gathered in secret at the hotel to talk about a deal for radioactive material. The Georgian seller offered cesium, a byproduct of nuclear reactors that terrorists can use to arm a dirty bomb. But one of the Turkish men made clear he was after something even more dangerous: uranium, the material for a nuclear bomb. The two Turks and the seller, businessman Soslan Oniani, were convicted in September 2012 in a Georgian court, according to officials, and sentenced to six years in prison each. Despite years of effort and hundreds of millions of dollars spent in the fight against the illicit sale of nuclear contraband, the black market remains active in the countries around the former Soviet Union.
