Paul Leventhal, President of the Nuclear Control Institute inspects an unguarded access point to the Panama Canal, 30km (18 miles) from Panama City, Sunday, Jan. 16, 2000. Leventhal toured the canal as part of his trip to Panama to monitor security measures of radioactive cargo. The Pacific Swan, a ship carrying nuclear waste bound for Japan, is scheduled to make the eight-hour Monday. Panamanian officials, now fully in control of the canal since the U.S. turned it over last month, have promised upgraded security for the risky transit. (AP Photo/Tomas van Houtryve)
