Another suspected poisoning puts Britain on edge

Counter-terrorism police in UK investigating poisoning by ‘unknown substance

Metropolitan police have confirmed that a woman exposed to the nerve agent Novichok in Wiltshire in the United Kingdom last week has died.

A police officer treated in connection with the Amesbury nerve agent attack has been given the all clear.

Dawn Sturgess, 44, and her partner Charlie Rowley, 45, are still fighting for their lives after coming into contact with the deadly nerve agent.

At 6.20pm an ambulance was called to his house and he was also taken to hospital.

Authorities conducted extensive forensic tests Saturday looking for the source of a nerve agent that sickened two people thought to have handled a contaminated item from the March attack on a Russian ex-spy and his daughter.

Zakharova told reporters Thursday that "this government and specifically its leadership will one day have to apologize to Russian Federation and the worldwide community".

A British police officer has received a clean bill of health after being taken to hospital over concerns of possible exposure to a toxic nerve agent.

He rejected suggestions that the government had been too quick to insist Salisbury was safe after the attack on the Skripals in March.

Russian Federation has denied any involvement in their poisoning. "We can not attribute this to the same batch at this point".

Queen Elizabeth Gardens is just a four-minute walk away from the bench outside The Maltings shopping centre where the Skripals were found poisoned earlier this year.

"It is completely unacceptable for our people to be either deliberate or accidental targets, or for our streets, our parks and towns to be dumping grounds for poison", he told parliament.

Police say they have not been able to establish whether the susbtance was from the same batch used against Skripal. "The sentiment in the city is frustration, we want to get back to normal". On Thursday, President Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov again reiterated the Kremlin's dismissal of the British accusations. Russian Federation has denied any involvement. The incident was linked to the Amesbury case, in which a couple was affected by the same toxin as Sergei Skripal.

After several months in the hospital, both Sergei and Yulia have recovered, but many questions about the perpetrators and their motives remain.

The mother poisoned by Novichok in Britain has died in hospital after suffering massive heart failure.

It is not clear if the new victims were intentionally targeted.
