Britain demands the extradition of Litvinenko suspects. Russia is angered, says the Telegraph. Popular Science says it highlights the role of hi-tech poisoning in international intrigue. Samizdata claims the Crown Prosecution Service knew that extradition would be rejected by Russia but still went ahead anyway. Fistful of Euros says it will be incoming PM Gordon Brown's first test.
There were rumors that Litvinenko was actually the buyer of a polonium shipment to be used in a dirty bomb attack on Britain, not the simple victim of a KGB poison plot. I wonder whether that scenario figures at all?
