Police keeping open mind after possible poisoning near Salisbury

British authorities insist there is "a low risk to the general public", but the apparent randomness of the contamination raises unanswered questions for residents of Salisbury, which was only just returning to normal after finding itself the epicentre of global tensions.

Britain's interior minister said the nerve agent was the same variety as that used against Skripal and his daughter, but it's not clear whether the two samples came from the same batch. But British security officials have said the latest case likely was not the result of direct targeting, and rather a ripple effect from the first incident.

Javid has called on Russian Federation to explain how Novichok showed up in Amesbury.

"I'm waiting for the phone call from the Russian state", he said.

The 2018 World Cup has been hailed as a one of the most enjoyable in years - but no British dignitaries, including chairman of the Football Association Prince William, will be attending any games in Russian Federation.

The couple, identified by the British media as Charlie Rowley, 45, and Dawn Sturgess, 44, fell ill at a house in Amesbury on Saturday, less than eight miles from the site of the last poisoning. "Of course we're concerned that these substances have been used repeatedly in Europe", Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said Thursday. The UK rushed to accuse Russian Federation of being involved, while failing to furnish any evidence.

The source said Russian Federation was likely to launch "significant" efforts to "confuse the public" after the latest incident.

What hasn't been determined yet is how and why these two people were poisoned. Police are now retracing the couple's steps to determine where the contamination took place. "So while the public at large are at very low risk from this material, until the source is found there is a remote chance that someone else might come into contact with it".

Police said they were first contacted by the hospital on Saturday after Rowley was admitted.

Forensic searches were due to be carried out at the Amesbury home where Sturgess and Rowley collapsed, and other sites the couple visited before they were sickened. They were later found slumped over on a bench at an outdoor shopping complex in Salisbury. Now a second couple has been poisoned by the same nerve agent and are fighting for their lives, according to authorities. "They are both in a critical condition".

After a lengthy treatment, the Skripals were released from the hospital and continue to recover in an undisclosed location, protected by British authorities.

He said: "To use a persistent nerve agent in a civilian area is extraordinary, it's a war crime, it's an absolutely vile act of terror that is being conducted by a state that claims to be a normal state".
