British officers investigating the fatal poisoning of Russian whistleblower Alexander Litvinenko claim they were also poisoned while pursuing the case in Moscow.
Litvinenko was a former KGB officer who defected to London shortly before his death to expose corruption within Kremlin’s security services. Litvinenko fell ill November 2006 after his tea was poisoned with radioactive polonium-210. He passed away 23 days later.

Scotland Yard officers travelled to Moscow to investigate the two men who allegedly put the polonium in Litvinenko’s tea. Brian Tarpey, who led the investigation, says his team was poisoned during a visit to the prosecutor general’s office.
