Text size Aa Aa

In Britain the inquest into the death of former KGB spy Alexander Litvinenko is in doubt after crucial evidence was ruled too ‘sensitive’ on grounds of national security.

The 43-year-old died from radioactive poisoning in London 2006 and the Russian state is suspected of involvement. A new inquiry able to hear the evidence in secret may be held.
