The truck was found on Wednesday close to where it was stolen outside Mexico City, said the official, who asked not to be identified in line with policy. The truck was stolen on Monday while it was taking cobalt-60 from a hospital in the northern city of Tijuana to a radioactive waste-storage center, Mexican officials and the UN agency said earlier. The vehicle was seized when the driver stopped at a gas station in the town of Temascalapa, 35 km (22 miles) northeast of Mexico City. Truck hijacking is common in Mexico and the theft occurred in the State of Mexico, which is not a drug cartel stronghold.
Lake Louise (Canada) (AFP) - Reigning Olympic downhill champion Lindsey Vonn finished her first official training run since February on Wednesday as she placed 22nd in the downhill practice session. Vonn completed the 3,067-metre course in 1:59.53 in cold and sunny conditions just two weeks after a fall in a private training run that has jeopardized her comeback attempt from knee surgery. "Back in one of my favorite places -- Lake Louise!!" Vonn posted on her Instagram page with a photo of her on the Canadian slope. US Ski Team doctors gave Vonn approval on Tuesday to take part in training runs Wednesday and Thursday at Lake Louise, with a final decision on her participation in races Friday through Sunday to be made after her last training run.
