A unit of radioactive material has arrived in Jerusalem from the Atomic Energy Research Institute at Harwell, the London Jewish Chronicle reported. Another consignment of the chemical is expected soon. The material is being used by the Hebrew University for research work in chemical radiation and biology, including cancer research. The British Government made only a token charge for the consignment.
