Andrei Lugovoi has been accused by the British of murdering Russian intelligence agent Alexander Litvinenko, yet says his wife and child needed treatment for radiation too.

This from Craig Murray
who also details why Litvinenko quit as an intelligence agency officer and why he feared for his life. He uncovered a huge heroin smuggling ring emanating out of Afghanistan through Uzbekistan and then to Russia. He told Putin about it, not realizing those involved on the Russian end were among Putin’s closest allies. The Afghan and Uzbek heroin trade enjoys similar protection at the highest levels too. Murray suggests a lot of people wanted him dead.
