Watchdog confirms UK findings on Russian-made nerve agent

London (United Kingdom) (AFP) – The world’s chemical arms watchdog on Thursday confirmed Britain’s findings that a nerve agent used in an attack on a former spy and his daughter in England last month originally came from Russia.

Blood samples tested by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) “confirm the findings of the United Kingdom relating to the identity of the toxic chemical,” according to a summary of the Hague-based group’s report released in London.
