Mas­sive break­through in Rus­sia link

Irish Daily Mirror - - IRISH DAILY MIRROR - BY CHRIS HUGHES De­fence and Se­cu­rity Ed­i­tor

THIS is a mas­sive break­through. It is highly likely tests will link the lat­est poi­son­ings with the at­tempt to kill Sergei Skri­pal and his daugh­ter.

The size of the bot­tle may re­veal a great deal about the po­tency of the Novi­chok and help point the fin­ger at Rus­sia. It is unimag­in­able they would dis­patch it in a con­tainer with Rus­sian mark­ings. But MI5 will con­duct an “au­dit trail” to find out where the con­tainer is likely to have come from.
