Britains Emergency Committee To Meet After Woman Dies From Nerve Agent Poisoning


LONDON – Britain’s interior minister will chair a meeting of the government’s emergency committee on Monday after a woman died from being poisoned by the same nerve agent used to target a former Russian spy, a spokesman for the prime minister said.

Dawn Sturgess, 44, died after she was exposed to Novichok in western England, just a few miles from where Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter were attacked with the same poison four months ago.
