It sounded an alert after a visit by its inspectors earlier this week to the undisclosed site, the report added. According to BBC, the self-styled Libyan National Army’s (LNA) media head said that ten drums containing the ore were found near the border with Chad. On Wednesday, as reported by AP, Vienna-based IAEA said that its director-general, Rafael Mariano Grossi, informed member states about the missing uranium. BBC mentioned in the report that the LNA, which claims to have found the uranium, is a coalition of military units, local, tribal and Salafi militias.
