Telegraph:Russian spy poisoning: ‘More is known’ about substance used on Sergei Skripal and daughter, Amber Rudd reveals
Mr Skripal was convicted in 2006 of passing state secrets to MI6 before being given refuge in the UK as part of a spy swap.
The former colonel in Russian military intelligence, who was sentenced to 13 years in prison, was among four convicts who were given pardons and one of two sent to Britain in 2010 in a deal that was said at the time to be the largest exchange since the Cold War.
He was found along with his daughter on a bench in The Maltings in Salisbury after police were called by a concerned member of the public at around 4.15pm on Sunday.
The pair did not have any visible injuries and were taken to Salisbury District Hospital, where they are being treated in intensive care for “suspected exposure to an unknown substance”.
Officers subsequently “secured” a number of scenes – including the Zizzi restaurant on Castle Street and the Bishop’s Mill pub in The Maltings.
Government scientists are analysing the substance at the centre of the Russian spy attack, amid fears it was a deadly nerve agent used in previous high profile political assassinations.
Police are close to a breakthrough in the Russian spy poisoning case, the Home Secretary Amber Rudd has suggested, as she revealed “more is now known about the substance” used against Colonel Sergei Skripal and his daughter.
The developments came as it emerged that Vladimir Putin had vowed to kill Col Sergei as he was being sent to the UK in a spy exchange.
CNN:France to set age of sexual consent at 15 after rape outcry
France’s government has proposed setting a formal age of sexual consent after two-high profile cases involving 11-year-old girls, according to the country’s Equality Minister.
Equality Minister Marlene Schiappa said the government “has decided to set the age at 15,” after consultations with the public and an expert panel. She said a new law would be presented to Council of Ministers — France’s equivalent of a cabinet — on March 21.
This isn’t reducing the age. It’s CREATING the age of consent!
And she had to consult with EXPERTS? Like WHO?
The French don’t have a problem with raping children?? What am I saying…
News.com.au:‘Somebody come get me’: 19-year-old Chinese blogger arrested after ‘free sex’ offer goes viral
A 19-YEAR-OLD Chinese blogger has been jailed for prostitution after an offer of free sex caused a stampede to her Hilton Hotel room.
Ye Mouyi, going by the username Qianjin Yeye, posted to social media site Weibo and instant messaging app WeChat a short geo-tagged message on March 1 containing her room number and exact address — the Hilton Hotel in Sanya City’s Haitang Bay, in China’s southern Hainan Province.
“Somebody come get me … Sex … for free … 6316,” she wrote in the message which quickly went viral. The post was accompanied by a video of the woman in a bikini inside the hotel room.
Independent:How a daughter brought her father’s long-forgotten New York love songs back to life with style
If there was one thing to which New Yorker Louis Rubin was even more dedicated than his beloved music and writing of songs, it was his family.
So when the Brooklyn-born fan of jazz, lindy and rhumba, returned to the US after being stationed in Britain during the Second World War, it was his wife, Beatrice, and his two daughters, on whom he focussed.
He wrote more than 200 songs but few of them were recorded – until now.
