UK police not declaring suspect yet in poisoning of Russian spy: senior officer

LONDON (Reuters) - Police investigating the poisoning of a Russian double agent in Britain will not at this stage name any potential suspects as their enquiries continue, a senior police officer said on Tuesday.

“At this stage, we are not declaring a person of interest or a suspect at this time,” Neil Basu, Senior National Co-ordinator for counter terrorism policing, told reporters.
