IS &#thirty-nine;Madmen' Would Utilize Nuke Material - Obama

US President Barack Obama has urged nations to do more to prevent "madmen" from the Islamic State grouping obtaining the material to create a radioactive dirty bomb.

He told a nuclear security summit in WA DC there is a persistent threat of terrorists conducting a nuclear attack.

More than fifty world leaders have gathered in the US capital over the past two days to discuss how to hold extremists from gathering radioactive materials, and other nuclear threats.

Mister Obama said the required one hundred two countries had presently ratified an amendment to an atomic security treaty that'd tighten protections against nuclear theft and smuggling.

"Working together, our nations have made it harder for terrorists to obtain their hands on nuclear material," he told the Nuclear Security Summit.

US executive said they'd number explicit proof that'S had tried to get such materials, but added they've number doubt the grouping is interested in doing so.

Mister Obama mentioned proof that extremists linked to the Paris and Brussels attacks had filmed a senior manager at a Belgian nuclear facility.

"ISIL has already used chemical weapons - there is number doubt if these madmen ever got their hands on a bomb or nuclear material they'd utilize it to murder as many as possible," he told world leaders.

He warned that a bomb containing fissile material the size of an apple could be catastrophic.

"The smallest quantity of plutonium could murder and injure hundreds of thousands of people," Mister Obama said.

"It'd be a humanitarian, political, economic, and environmental catastrophe with global ramifications for decades.

"It'd modify our world."

With Russian President Vladimir Putin boycotting the summit, a major deal on reducing global stockpiles of atomic weapons is out of reach.
