The UK to expel 23 "undeclared intelligence officers"

  • The UK is going to expel 23 Russian diplomats who were identified as “undeclared intelligence officers” after Moscow refused to explain how a Russian-made nerve agent was used on a former spy in Salisbury. The diplomats have a week to leave. According to reports, the weapon used in the attack was so horrific that it is banned in a war. Russia has denied any involvement and the Russian Embassy in London has warned that May's response was totally unacceptable and shortsighted.
