Britain requests U.N. Security Council meet on poison report

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Britain requested on Thursday that the United Nations Security Council meet next week to discuss a chemical weapons watchdog report that concluded a nerve agent was used in the attempted murder of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal.

The British mission to the United Nations has requested a meeting of the Security Council on the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons report. “We expect this to be held next week,” the mission said in a tweet.
