A nun and two other peace activists have been found guilty of damaging a store for bomb-grade uranium.

Sister Megan Rice, who is now 83, Michael Walli and Greg Boertje-Obed broke into the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, in July 2012. The three remained undiscovered for several hours after cutting through security fences.

They will be sentenced in September and face up to 20 years in jail.
