ISIS would Kill Innocent People if they Landed on a Nuclear Bomb, Barack Obama Reveals

US President Barack Obama has revealed what he thinks Islamic State terrorists would do if they got their hands on a nuclear bomb.

US President Barack Obama addresses a press conference during the Nuclear Security Summit.

Speaking at a nuclear security summit in Washington, Mr Obama said that if the extremist militants got their hands on such dangerous weapons it would inevitably "change our world".

He said: "There is no doubt that if these madmen ever got their hands on a nuclear bomb or nuclear material they most certainly would use it to kill as many innocent people as possible."

Addressing the action required to prevent that from happening, he added: "I’m the first to acknowledge the great deal of work that remains.
"But we’ve begun."

The world remains on high alert following last year’s Paris terror attacks, and the atrocity last month in Brussels.

Leaders said that security efforts have meant that terrorists so far have failed to obtain a nuclear weapon or a dirty bomb.

High alert: Barack Obama and David Cameron are planning for the worst.

The summit is being held over two days, and David Cameron has also attended.

Mr Cameron said: "When it comes to the problems of international terrorism, the concept of terrorists and nuclear materials coming together is obviously a very chilling prospect and something - in light of the Belgian attacks - we know is only too real.

"So many summits are about dealing with things that have already gone wrong and we are trying to put right.

"This is a summit about something we are trying to prevent."
