 UK: Hundreds may be poisoned in nerve agent attack on Russian spy

Public health authorities in the UK are warning that as many as 500 people may have been contaminated with the nerve agent used to attack a former Russian spy last weekend.

Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia remain critically ill in hospital after being attacked.

Traces of the toxin have been found at a restaurant and a pub in the city of Salisbury and doctors are now urging people who visited the locations last weekend to thoroughly clean their belongings.
