She also reported that 240 witnesses are being questioned and 200 items of evidence examined in the effort to run down the perpetrator and the source of the nerve agent used in the crime, while containing possible environmental contamination.

    So much soap opera about a double agent who probably also run some weapon sales to some Arabs or Iranians businesses. Double agents are almost universally eliminated when they become too big for their boots. Nerve gas is too complicated to deliver without a risk of premature exposure. KGB is more sophisticated than that. What for? To punish such a small fish. Most likely nonsense accusations.
