UK Deploys Military Experts In Former Russian Spy Poising Probe
Russian spy: Foreign minister says Russia willing to help in inquiry
11 March, 2018, 01:33
Britain's home secretary and government ministers held an emergency meeting Saturday as investigators probe the attempt to kill a former Russian double agent and his daughter using a rare nerve agent.
Skripal and his daughter Yulia, seen in a composite photo, were found slumped on a park bench last Sunday outside a shopping centre in the southern English town of Salisbury.
Ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia are still critically ill after they were found collapsed on a bench in Salisbury.
Entrances to the cemetery remained sealed off by police cordons and a blue and white forensic tent was also seen over the memorial stone of Mr Skripal's son Alexander, who was cremated a year ago.
In 2006, Skripal was convicted in Russian Federation of being a double agent and secretly passing classified information to British intelligence.
Counterterrorism detectives are leading a vast investigation.
At the hospital where the Skripals were being treated another team used an army truck to remove a police vehicle.
Authorities say there is no risk to the general public from the attack.
Police have not revealed what nerve agent was involved.
Detectives were retracing the Skripals' movements as they try to discover how the toxin was administered and where it was manufactured.
Military chemical experts were continuing their work on Saturday in the city, including at the grave of Mr Skripal's wife Liudmila, who was buried in 2012, and the memorial stone of his son Alexander who was cremated past year. His wife died of cancer in 2012, while his son died from liver failure in 2017 and was buried in the United Kingdom.
Warriors deny Spurs road win
But then the Spurs did what they have become prone to doing in the fourth quarter and Kevin Durant what he often does. After getting fouled on a dunk attempt, Klay Thompson hit both free throws to give Golden State a four-point cushion.
Skripal's son, Alexander, died in July a year ago at the age of 43.
Possible responses include the expulsion of some of Russia's 58 diplomats, some kind of boycott of the 2018 football World Cup or an increased British military presence in eastern Europe.
Officers in hazmat suits were seen placing a blue forensic tent over his son's memorial stone before appearing to stuff items in several yellow barrels. "There may be some clues floating around in here", he said of Skripal's house.

The U.K. has vowed to take strong action against whoever was responsible for the "brazen and reckless" attack.

"The impact locally is still being experienced everyday. we have a large part of Salisbury that is still cordoned off, around The Maltings, near to the Zizzi restaurant, and The Mill pub".
