Ex KGB spy likely poisoned by his old buddies

Doctors treating the former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko said tonight they could not rule out the possibility that he was poisoned with radioactive thallium.

After a period of confusion during which the University College hospital trust appeared to rule out thallium - contradicting the diagnosis of the clinical toxicologist called in to examine the dissident - the trust later clarified that it was unlikely Mr Litvinenko's illness was caused by thallium sulphate poisoning.


"The thallium is the least of it - the radioactivity seems more important," Prof Henry said. "He may need a bone marrow transplant to get him better."
