UK deploys military in Russia spy attack probe

 

British soldiers were deployed on Friday to help a counter-terrorism investigation into a nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy as speculation mounted over how London could retaliate if the Russian state is found to be responsible.

The defence ministry said 180 soldiers were being dispatched to the normally quiet city of Salisbury in southwestern England, initially to remove “a number of vehicles and objects from the scene”.

“The public should not be alarmed and the public health advice remains the same.

“Military assistance will continue as necessary during this investigation,” a police spokesman said.
