ISTANBUL -- Turkish news agencies say that authorities have arrested two Georgian citizens who tried to enter the Turkey with radioactive material, including cesium.

State-run Anadolu Agency says a woman identified only as N.K., aged 43, and a man, I.A., 40, were arrested Friday at a border gate in northeastern Turkey. The agency said they entered by foot from Georgia and were acting suspiciously. A search found 1.2 kilos of the cesium.

Authorities later detained a 60-year-old Turk, and all three were brought to court.

The material was delivered to the Turkish Atomic Energy Board.

Cesium-137 is a highly radioactive substance that is a waste product from nuclear reactors. It is used for scientific purposes, but could also be used by terrorists in a dirty bomb to disperse deadly radiation with explosives.

The southern Turkish border is one of the main routes for jihadist recruits trying to get into war-torn Syria, where ISIS and al Qaeda's local branch, the al-Nusra Front, and a number of other militant groups are fighting eachother, and the Syrian government.

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."
