UK: COBRA officials meet to discuss Amesbury case at Downing Street

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and other top government and military officials met for an emergency COBRA meeting in Downing Street 10 on Thursday, to discuss the alleged poisoning of a couple in Amesbury, Wiltshire. The COBRA meeting was called and chaired by Home Secretary Sajid Javid, who will make a statement to the House of Commons later. The man and woman — believed to be... Еще Charlie Rowley and Dawn Sturgess — were taken to Salisbury hospital after what police say was exposure to the nerve agent Novichok. The couple were found unconscious and in a critical condition at an address on Muggleton Road, Amesbury this Wednesday. A «major incident» has since been declared by police, and UK counter-terrorism officers have joined the inquiry. The same agent was supposedly used on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury this March. Both locations are a short distance from the UK's chemical weapons laboratory Porton Down.
