MEXICO CITY (AP) - A Mexican government official says six people being tested for possible radiation exposure are suspects in the theft of truck carrying cobalt-60.

The official says the six were arrested Thursday and taken to the general hospital in Pachuca for observation and testing for radiation exposure.

The official spoke Friday on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press.

Hidalgo state Health Minister Pedro Luis Noble said none are in grave condition and may be released soon.
