U.S. President Barack Obama returns to Washington, after attending a nuclear security summit in South Korea. During the two-day meeting with more than 50 world leaders, Obama cautioned against complacency in dealing with the threat of 'nuclear terrorism'. Obama told leaders the world was safer because of the steps taken to improve nuclear security. But he warned that the threat of the wrong people getting hold of the materials to make a crude atomic bomb was real. A communiqué issued at the end of the meeting outlined ways to reduce the risk of atomic materials falling into the wrong hands, loosely calling for all vulnerable materials to be secured in four years.
