Ex-Russian spy and daughter stable in UK

Thursday, March 08, 2018

British Home Secretary Amber Rudd says a former Russian spy and his daughter, who were poisoned with a nerve agent, are in a critical but stable condition. 

Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious in the English city of Salisbury on Sunday. 

Rudd says a police officer who treated them is in serious but stable condition and is "talking and engaging.'' She says it's highly likely the officer was exposed to the same nerve agent. 

Rudd says the attack is an "outrageous crime'' and a "brazen and reckless act'' but cautions it is too early to say who was behind it.
