Mother exposed to nerve agent dies ten days after exposure

Another suspected poisoning puts Britain on edge

Authorities have launched a murder inquiry into her death, police said.

According to police, Dawn Sturgess, 44, and a 45-year-old man became sick on June 30 in Amesbury, England.

"The 45-year-old man who fell ill with Dawn remains critically ill in hospital and our thoughts are with him and his family as well".

Officers are still trying to work out how Ms Sturgess and Mr Rowley were exposed to the nerve agent although tests have confirmed they touched a contaminated item with their hands.

A 44-year-old Wiltshire woman who collapsed after coming into contact with nerve agent Novichok has died.

Per Phillips' report, one student said that he saw the pick "all over the news" and that the selection is someone who is racist. Just days after his inauguration in January 2017 he nominated the conservative justice Neil Gorsuch to the court.

Britain maintains the March attack on the Skripals had been ordered by the Russian government, a charge denied by representatives of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

United Kingdom and other Western officials have blamed Russian Federation for carrying out the attack on the Skripals - a charge that Moscow has denied.

British PM Theresa May has expressed outrage over the death of Dawn Sturgess. Sturgess was taken to hospital around 10.15am and Rowley several hours later, around 3.30pm.

Police said the investigation "into the attempted murders of the Skripals is ongoing as detectives continue to assess all the evidence available". Skripal was discharged from the hospital in May and his daughter was released in April.

Police say the nerve agent that sickened Rowley and Sturgess was the same type that nearly killed the Skripals, but scientists haven't been able to tell whether it was from the same batch.

The new poisoning has frightened some residents who thought an extensive cleanup had removed the threat of any further Novichok exposure.

Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned in March, 2018.

Amesbury is just a 20-minute drive from Salisbury, England.

Britain's public health authority acknowledged on Friday the concerns of people living in the area after the two incidents involving Novichok, but said it was confident that the risk to the public remained low.

Hospital officials said late Saturday that a number of people including a police officer had sought medical advice in the last week but had been found not to need any treatment.

John Glen, the Conservative Party legislator for the region, said the new poisoning has threatened an economic rebound from the slowdown caused by the attack on the Skripals. "The sentiment in the city is frustration, we want to get back to normal".
