Fresh Evidence in Litvinenko Case

The Daily Mirror has a report on new evidence which points to a near-certainty in the Litvinenko murder inquiry. Excerpt:

A £1.50 bus ticket proves that murdered Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko was poisoned in a London hotel.

The ticket for a No 134 London bus was found in Litvinenko’s coat pocket after he was dosed with deadly polonium 210.

It was bought near his home in Muswell Hill, North London, from where he travelled to meetings in the West End on November 1.

Checks reveal that the bus he boarded has not been contaminated by radiation.

This, police say, almost certainly proves Litvinenko was poisoned at London’s Millennium Hotel where he drank tea that day with former colleagues Dmitry Kovtun and Andrei Lugovoi.
