The New York Post: U.K. couple poisoned with same nerve gas as former Russian spy

LONDON — A man and a woman who have been admitted to a hospital in western England were exposed to the same nerve agent that was behind the poisoning of a former Russian intelligence officer and his daughter four months ago, counterterrorism police said Wednesday.

Britain blamed Russia for the earlier poisoning using Novichok, a military-grade nerve agent developed in the Soviet Union. Moscow denied any responsibility for that attack.

The man and woman, both British nationals, collapsed at home over the weekend in Amesbury, 7 miles from Salisbury where spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned in March.
