Litvinenko's Murder: "Foreign State" Suspected

The Times (UK) is reporting that British intelligence now suspects “a foreign state” of being implicated in Litvinenko’s murder:

A senior Whitehall official told The Times that confirmation that the former Russian spy, who had become a British citizen, had been poisoned with radioactive polonium-210 and other evidence so far not released pointed to the murder being carried out by foreign agents.

Last night the Foreign Office said that officials had met with the Russian ambassador in London and had asked the Kremlin to hand over any information that it had which could help the Scotland Yard investigation.
