Litvinenko Poisoners' Identity Confirmed

From the Daily Mirror:

British detectives are certain they know who murdered former Soviet spy Alexander Litvinenko with radioactive poison.

But they say authorities in Russia are unlikely to send his two killers here to face trial.

Both were interviewed before Christmas by officers sent to Moscow.

They admit meeting Litvinenko in London, where he was slipped a powerful dose of polonium 210 in early November, but deny involvement.

Police will submit a file to the Crown Prosecution Service naming the two.
