By Guillermo Ximenis/ London / United Kingdom police have identified more than 200 witnesses in their investigations to determine who poisoned the Russian double spy Sergei Skripal, currently in critical though stable condition after he and his daughter Yulia were exposed to a nerve agent, UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd reported Saturday.
Rudd led an emergency committee meeting Saturday afternoon to organize an investigation involving some 250 agents from eight of the country’s 11 regional counterterrorism units, along with 200 army troops.
The home secretary said after the meeting that it is still too soon to name a possible suspect in the case, and said the police need “space and time” to analyze the more than 240 clues gathered to date and to review a substantial amount of spy camera videos.
Authorities are also attempting to find out where the chemical substance was made that poisoned Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, also hospitalized in serious condition.
Both were found last Sunday slumped unconscious on a park bench in the English city of Salisbury, where security forces have cordoned off a pizza restaurant where they had eaten, as well as the graves of the late wife and son of the former Russian spy in the cemetery of this cathedral city.
