Brit troops scour town after ex-spy, daughter poisoned

Vladimir Putin's army has been revealed

British officials say there is not a public health threat but some residents have become alarmed by the site of investigators wearing extensive hazardous material protection gear. He said Russian Federation was ready to assist "any investigation" but that it was "not necessary to hurl unfounded accusations on TV".

Former London Police Chief Ian Blair said Friday that the police officer who is seriously ill had visited Skripal's house - suggesting that the nerve agent was delivered there.

Police also extended the cordon around the modest suburban home of Sergei Skripal in Salisbury, as Home Secretary Amber Rudd visited the city, calling the attack "outrageous".

The March 4 attack on Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury, southwest England, is being treated as attempted murder.

Commentators said police were exploring the theory that the former Russian spy and his daughter, who was reportedly visiting from Moscow, were exposed to the nerve agent at the house.

Authorities are racing to determine the source of the nerve agent used against Skripal, who came to Britain in 2010 as part of a spy swap.

"I understand people's curiosity about all those questions, wanting to have answers, and there will be a time to have those answers". He described the comments as an attempt to politicize the affair, and attacked the media for aiding the government's efforts.

White House officials said the tariffs dispute contributed to Cohn's decision to leave but that it was not the sole reason. The trade group officials and the video game publishing executives declined requests for interviews.

A similar number of soldiers will return to Salisbury today to continue the investigation and clean up operation, the Ministry of Defence said.

"In terms of further options, that will have to wait until we're absolutely clear what the consequences could be and what the actual source of this nerve agent has been", Rudd said. He is conscious, talking and engaging, and remains in a serious but stable condition.

"Nick would like us to say on his behalf that he and his family are hugely grateful for all the messages of support from the public, and colleagues from the police family", the police department said.

Military vehicles at Salisbury District Hospital as troops are being sent to assist police. In 2010, President Dmitry Medvedev pardoned him, after which, in the framework of exchange of spies with the U.S., he was sent to the United Kingdom, where he was granted asylum. He was convicted in his home country in 2006 for passing state secrets to MI6.

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

"We have not heard a single fact; we only watch footage on TV, where our colleagues say with serious faces and with gusto that if it is Russian Federation, then a response will follow that Russian Federation will remember forever", he said, according to Interfax.

But the investigation by the police and authorities to establish the full facts is ongoing. "People are right to want to know who to hold to account but if we are to be rigorous in this investigation we must avoid speculation and allow the police to carry on their investigation".
