Experts arrive in Uk to test nerve agent over Salisbury poisoning case

 A team of international experts is due to arrive in the UK to assess the nerve agent used to poison ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury, BBC reported on Monday.


The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons delegation will visit the military research base at Porton Down in Wiltshire, whose own experts say the agent is of a type first developed by Russia.


Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has accused Moscow of stockpiling the agent used.


But President Vladimir Putin said Russia had destroyed all of its chemical weapons and it was "nonsense" to implicate his government in the attack on 4 March.


Mr and Ms Skripal remain critically ill in hospital. Here's what we know so far.
