Cairo International Airport - YOUM7/Sami Waheeb

CAIRO: The Cairo International Airport received a privately-imported consignment of Dutch radioactive isotopes Monday to use them in cancer treatment, Youm7 reported.

The consignment arrived in 11 parcels weighing 120 kilograms, and was allowed into the country amid heavy security and after an examination by a delegate from the Atomic Energy Authority to make sure they met radiation limits.

Last week, the airport received radioactive isotopes parcels weighing 49-kilograms (108 lb) from Iran for the same medical purposes.
