Sergei Skripal poisoning: Former Russian spy recovering rapidly, hospital says Abc.net.au. Kevin W: “Key quote-‘What we also know however, is that with time the body clears the nerve agent away.’ Aaaaand now we know why they are being held so long and won’t allow the Russians to take blood samples and the like.”
YouTube (YY). “Why can’t Theresa May find a donkey who’ll do a better job on Britain’s foreign relations than the rear end of a pantomime horse called Boris Johnson?”
John Helmer (Chuck L). “The evidence now accumulating is that the hospital is detaining and isolating the Skripals against their will, preventing with their family.” That would be against a whole lotta laws.
Mirror (YY). And why weren’t their bodies kept for analysis of toxins? And that poor cat was handsome. Kevin W on :
The whole thing makes no sense. You would reckon that the Army would have been over the house wearing “noddy” suits and looking with a fine tooth comb for traces of chemicals. Having animals there would be “bonus time” as you could test their blood for any traces of chemical contaminants. The fact that the guinea pigs died and the cat in a bad state suggest that the house was sealed (the cat may have been lucky if it could get to the toilet water, unless the lid was closed). And this was before they took the front door away. Feel sorry for them as it was so unnecessary.

Middle East Eye. Chuck L:
Among the dead was 15-year-old Hussein Mohammed Madi from Gaza City. Madi was killed east of Gaza City by an expanding dumdum bullet, the ministry said.
This kind of ammunition is illegal in warfare. But I guess it’s OK if you’re shooting Palestinians in Gaza. Or are they fish in a barrel?
