Kremlin 'Categorically' Denying Involvement in Second Suspected Novichok Poisoning

Kremlin 'Categorically' Denying Involvement in Second Suspected Novichok Poisoning

More than 100 officers were looking for clues in a race to understand how two local people were exposed to a nerve agent that was produced in the Soviet Union during the Cold War. The victims were later identified as Charles Rowley and Dawn Sturgess.

The incident has reignited the diplomatic row over the Skripal poisoning between Britain and Russian Federation, who Prime Minister Theresa May blamed for the attack.

"We are anxious by the repeated use of such substances in Europe", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the BBC desk in Russian Federation, categorically denying Russia's involvement. He also said the perpetrators might have escaped detection due to Britain not being a "security state".

Police officers on the scene outside Harcourt Medical Centre by Queen Elizabeth Gardens in Salisbury, thought to be connected to a man and woman in Amesbury who are in hospita in critical condition.

In addition to a "failed" Brexit and a "failed" economy, she is dealing with the uncertainty over Mr Trump's visit and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, he said.

Britain's interior minister said the nerve agent was the same variety as that used against Skripal and his daughter, but it's not clear whether the two samples came from the same batch.

British counterterrorism experts are working with police, but this incident has not been declared as a terror attack.

A spokesperson for the Kremlin on Thursday claimed that it offered to help Great Britain investigate a chemical attack on an ex-Russian spy earlier this year, but was turned down.

On Friday morning, the hurricane was about 1,140 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles where the BVI is located. The National Hurricane Center believes that some additional intensification is possible today.

The Skripals eventually recovered after treatment, but not before the British government lead the charge for a major diplomatic pushback against Russian Federation for orchestrating the attack-something Moscow continues to deny.

British media have identified them as Charlie Rowley, 45, and Dawn Sturgess, 44. He said: "It is completely unacceptable for our people to be either deliberate or accidental targets, or for our streets, our parks, our towns, to be dumping grounds for poison".

"Where we have decontaminated sites from the previous exposure to this nerve agent - we are happy that those sites are safe and the public should know that they are safe", he said.

"It is not believed that there is a significant health risk to the public".

A friend said Rowley was a drug user and police said "paraphernalia" found in his house had initially led them to believe that the couple had fallen ill after consuming contaminated crack cocaine or heroin. Sturgess and Rowley have no known links to Russian Federation.

Police have cordoned off a home in nearby Amesbury and other places that the latest victims visited, including a church, a pharmacy and a park in Salisbury, near where the Skripals were found.

A hospital spokeswoman said Thursday they were "acutely ill" and the focus of their treatment was "stabilisation". He said that Sturgess fell ill first then Rowley later on.

After the Skripal poisoning, police investigators in protective hazmat suits scoured the ancient English cathedral city of Salisbury and Mr Basu cautioned that police in protective clothing would return to the area.
