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.
