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.
