London at risk of 'surge' in assassinations by Russian spies
26th June 2014

Business chiefs have warned London could be at risk of a "surge" in assassinations by Russian spies.

Experts say if the Government tightens sanctions on Moscow over the conflict in Ukraine, then the Kremlin-backed attacks could become more common.

Russian agents, who are accused of killing Alexander Litvinenko in 2006, are thought to have carried out assassinations in Austria and Turkey this year.
