    > During a routine check to make sure that its mobile radiation detection unit was working properly, the nuclear energy regulatory agency of Indonesia, known as BAPETEN discovered an unusually high reading in a vacant lot near a housing complex.

    > The statement continued, "A joint BAPETEN and BATAN team conducted a search to find the source of the high radiation on Feb. 7 to 8 and found several radioactive fragments. Based on those results, we concluded that the contamination had spread in the area and decontamination efforts had to be conducted by removing or dredging contaminated soil and removing contaminated trees and other vegetation.”

    > Gunawan said after the fragments were removed, tests showed that the radiation levels in the area had decreased but were still above normal levels.
