"All Belgian residents issued with iodine tablets to protect against radiation"
"The entire population of Belgium is to be issued with a ration of iodine tablets, months after warnings about the threat of Isil [the Islamic state] building a dirty bomb."
NOT NECESSARILY BUILDING THE DIRTY BOMB, THE RADIOLOGICAL WEAPON, TERRORISTS ATTACKING A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT, BREACHING THE CONTAINMENT VESSEL WITH A SPEW OF RADIOACTIVE PARTICLES AS A CONSEQUENCE. A CHERNOBYL IN SITU TYPE EVENT OF APOCALYPTIC PROPORTIONS.
"Iodine pills, which help reduce radiation build-up in the thyroid gland, had previously only been issued to people living within 20km (14 miles) of the Tihange and Doel nuclear plants."
"Maggie De Block, the Health Minister, said that would be extended to 100km, covering the whole country of 11 million people, following advice from an expert council."
"The pills will be sent to pharmacies, and the public would be ordered to collect their ration in the event of a meltdown. Children, pregnant women and those breast-feeding would be given priority"
