Dirty Bomb Threat in Port of Charleston

At approximately 8 p.m. local time on Wednesday authorities were made aware of a potential threat in a container aboard the vessel Maersk Memphis in the Port of Charleston in the U.S.

The Maersk Memphis is currently moored at Charleston's Wando terminal which has been evacuated while law enforcement units from federal, state and local law enforcement agencies investigate the threat.

The Coast Guard has established a one nautical mile safety zone around the vessel while law enforcement authorities investigate the threat.

There appears to be a link between threat and a YouTube video titled Maersk Memphis Update: US Coast Guard / DHS Sweep for Radioactive Material:
