25 Reported instances of nuclear explosive materials being lost or stolen in
the past 20 years
100,000 Number of bombs that can be built with the amount of highly enriched
uranium, or HEU, today
100 Pounds of HEU that can fit in a shoebox

Data from a presentation by O’Neil Hamilton of the Caribbean Community, or
CARICOM, during the Next Generation Nuclear Security Summit in Washington in
April 2010. Caribbean leaders are worried about the transit of vessels carrying
highly toxic and nuclear waste in local waters that could be targets of
terrorist attacks, Hamilton said. CARICOM has called for ces- sation of these
practices and the education of the public on the dangers of nuclear
proliferation. The goal is to have a nuclear-free zone, as stated in 1967’s
Treaty of Tlatelolco signed by all countries in the region.
