I'm waiting for some other confirmation on this besides UPI, but if this pans out

Iraqi security reportedly discovered three missiles carrying nuclear heads concealed in a concrete trench northwest of Baghdad, official sources said Wednesday.
The official daily al-Sabah quoted the sources as saying the missiles were discovered in trenches near the city of Tikrit, the hometown of ousted Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.
"The three missiles were discovered by chance when the Iraqi security forces captured former Baath party official Khoder al-Douri who revealed during interrogation the location of the missiles saying they carried nuclear heads," the sources said.
They pointed out that the missiles were actually discovered in the trenches lying under six meters of concrete and designed in a way to unable sophisticated sensors from discovering nuclear radiation.

Update: Reuters reports
that Iraq's Interior Ministry calls the report "stupid."
Update 2: As Allah says

for Josh Marshall.
Update 3: Make no mistake that I [do not * see comments for editing reasons] view this only as an oppurtunity for gloating. If this report is indeed true, that means there are probably other nukes buried about the country and I'd hate to see them get in the wrong hands. Frankly, I'd feel a bit more comfortable if it wasn't
