Nun, 82, among protesters who created security breach

Thursday, August 02, 2012

A major security breach forces the government to shut down one of its most sensitive nuclear weapons sites Thursday night.

An 82-year-old nun is one of the reasons why.

Sister Megan Rice was among three protesters who broke through millions of dollars worth of security.

The target was the country's largest stockpile of uranium for nuclear bombs in Oak Ridge, Tenn.

They splashed blood on the building.

The government says they were not close to getting inside.
