Police: Russian spy was poisoned by nerve agent

Description....

Former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter were deliberately poisoned by a nerve agent in England over the weekend, UK police said. Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley told reporters that police were treating Sunday's incident as "attempted murder by a nerve agent," though he declined to elaborate on the specific substance that was believed to have been used. Skripal -- a former Russian military official convicted of spying for the UK -- and his daughter Yulia are critically ill after passing out on a shopping center bench in the southern English town of Salisbury. A police officer who was one of the first to arrive on the scene also has fallen ill and is in serious condition at a hospital, Rowley said.
