An unidentified nuclear physicist has been arrested in Vienne, France, for alleged ties to Algerian militant groups, The Associated Press reported Oct. 9, citing the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). The scientist was one of more than 7,000 working at CERN and he was on a contract project. He was not assigned to anything that could be used by militants; he has worked at the Large Hadron Collider experiment along its tunnel under the Swiss-French border since 2003. The Paris prosecutor’s office’s anti-terrorist section has taken the case.
Unidentified ay? I wonder how he managed to work at CERN without anyone actually ever asking his name? Must be easier to get high security jobs in Europe than I thought. His degree must just be blank I suppose. Mistake by the internet diploma company? I suppose he will now be known as a “UNP” Unidintified Nuclear Physicist.
