Officials worry nuclear power plants in Belgium could be ISIS' next target.
If terrorists managed to get inside and disable a plant, there's speculation they could shut down power across much of Belgium. They could also theoretically make radioactive bombs from materials inside a facility, though experts told The New York Times that idea seems far-fetched.
The British defense secretary said ISIS' desire for nuclear weapons "was a new and emerging threat."
