Was deadly VX nerve agent used on Russian spy in Salisbury attack?

  
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. Experts from the government's chemical defence laboratory at Porton Down, just six miles from where Sergei Skripal was targeted in Salisbury, were understood to be urgently trying to identify the chemical. The former Russian spy and his 33-year-old daughter Yulia, who was with him at the time, were rushed to Salisbury District Hospital, where a major incident was declared, amid fears the mysterious substance could result in further casualties. One theory being explored was that the substance could be the deadly nerve agent, VX, which was used last year in the murder of Kim Jong-nam - the estranged half brother of the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. The chemical was first developed by the British firm, ICI, in the 1950s, but was put to deadly use by Saddam Hussein in an attack against the Kurds in 1988. Yulia Skripal was on holiday visiting her father when they both collapsed in a Salisbury street Kim Jong-nam was killed last February at Kuala Lumpur International Airport, when two women approached him and smeared cloths soaked with VX nerve agent across his face. The fast-acting toxin began to attack his nervous system and despite being able to alert officials, he was dead within 20 minutes. VX, which is the most deadly of all nerve agents, was first developed in the 1950s and is a tasteless and odorless liquid, which can be fatal for humans on skin contact. It penetrates the skin and disrupts the transmission of nerve impulses, leading to a loss of consciousness, paralysis and eventually fatal respiratory failure. Counter-terror police, who are now leading the investigation into the Salisbury poisonings, will also be examining the 2012 death of Russian whistleblower, Alexander Perepilichnyy, who died in mysterious circumstances. Kim Jong-nam was assassinated with the nerve agent VX Credit: Shizuo Kambayashi /AP He was initially thought to have died of natural causes while out jogging, but traces of a deadly chemical was later found in his stomach. It was later suggested he could have been poisoned using the plant Gelsemium elegans, which had been secreted in the sorrel soup he ate shortly before he died. Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, a former commander of the British Army's chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear regiment, said the attack had all the hallmarks of a toxic airborne nerve agent. A police tent covers the spot where Sergei Skripal and his daughter collapsed in Salisbury Credit: Frank Augstein /AP One theory being explored by counter-terrorism experts is that the substance was contained in an aerosol that was sprayed in the faces of Mr Skripal and his daughter. Officials have said there is no danger to the wider public, but have warned emergency workers who attended the scene, to be wary if they develop itchy skin or eyes or suffer from breathing problems. Video: CCTV shows 'persons of interest' in Salisbury Mr de Bretton-Gordon, who is now chief executive of Avon Protection Systems, told The Telegraph that VX was one possibility in the Salisbury incident. He said: "I certainly don't think it's a radiological isotope like polonium-210 that we saw with, Alexander Litvinenko, mainly because it takes considerable time to take effect. "With Litvinenko it wasn't obvious for two or three days. It would appear that whatever they took or were given or were attacked with, is rather quicker than that." Alexander Litvinenko, pictured in a UK hospital bed, was poisoned by a radioactive isotope Credit: PA Witnesses reported seeing Mr Skripal holding his hands in the air and shaking violently after he collapsed. Mr de Bretton-Gordon said: "The shaking hands, and also I have also seen it described as him appearing to be frozen, that is sort of what nerve agents do, because they destroy your nerves." He also said the precautions taken by police

World's oldest message in a bottle found on Australian beach

  
It's always exciting to discover a message in a bottle, but rarely ones that are 132 years old. Found on Wedge Island in Western Australia on Jan. 21, it's the oldest message in a bottle ever discovered. SEE ALSO: Microsoft co-founder discovers sunken WWII aircraft carrier The discovery breaks the last record for the oldest message in a bottle, which was 108 years old and found in Germany in 2005.  Dating back to 1886, the gin bottle was tossed from the German ship Paula in the Indian Ocean as part of an oceanographic experiment. Scientific researchers hoped the bottle would help them better understand ocean currents and hence find better shipping routes. German merchant sailing barque Paula in 1880.Image: Artist: Edouard Adam. Image courtesy: Deutsches Schiffahrtsmuseum-UnterweserPerth resident Tonya Illman uncovered the bottle half-buried as she was walking with a friend along the soft sand dunes, thinking it might look good in her bookcase. "My son's girlfriend was the one who discovered the note when she went to tip the sand out. The note was damp, rolled tightly and wrapped with string," Tonya Illman said in a statement.  "We took it home and dried it out, and when we opened it we saw it was a printed form, in German, with very faint German handwriting on it." Illman and her husband Kym brought the bottle to the Western Australian Museum, who have published a report on the discovery. The Illmans even have produced s video about their find. Researchers think the bottle washed up on the beach within a year of being thrown off the ship, but was buried in the sand until a storm helped to unearth it a century later. The note, in German, asked for its finder to send the slip back to the German Naval Observatory or the nearest German consulate, with the date of its discovery and where it was found.  Dutch and German researchers were able to find a record of the bottle being thrown overboard by the captain of the Paula, ending one very long experiment. The Illmans have loaned the bottle to the Museum for two years. "This has been the most remarkable event in my life. To think that this bottle has not been touched for nearly 132 years and is in perfect condition, despite the elements, beggars belief. I'm still shaking," Illman said in a blog post.

Oldest message in a bottle found after 132 years

  
The world's oldest known message in a bottle – thrown off a German ship on June 12, 1886 – has been found by a family on a remote beach  in Australia after their car became stuck in the sand. The message was written in German on paper which was bound and tied with a string and kept in a nineteenth-century Dutch gin bottle. The note stated it was thrown off the sailing barque Paula, about 600 miles off coast of Western Australia.  It was found 132 years later by Tonya Illman, who spotted an object sticking out of the sand while walking with her family near Wedge Island, 100 miles north of Perth.  "It just looked like a lovely old bottle, so I picked it up thinking it might look good in my bookcase," she told ABC News. Ms Illman turned the bottle over and a damp piece of paper tipped out. "My son's girlfriend was the one who discovered the note when she went to tip the sand out," she said. "We took it home and dried it out, and when we opened it we saw it was a printed form, in German, with very faint German handwriting on it." The family took their find to Ross Anderson, a maritime archaeology expert at the Western Australian Museum, who confirmed the gin and paper were authentic. He then contacted colleagues in Germany and the Netherlands who tracked down handwriting samples from the captain's entries in the ship's meteorological journal. "Incredibly, there was an entry for June 12, 1886, made by the captain, recording a drift bottle having been thrown overboard," Dr Anderson told ABC News. "The date and the coordinates correspond exactly with those on the bottle message. The handwriting is identical in terms of cursive style, slant, font, spacing, stroke emphasis, capitalisation and numbering style." From the 1860s, the German Naval Observatory ran an experiment to examine ocean currents in which it urged captains to toss bottles overboard containing a form which recorded the date, the ship's coordinates and details about its route. Ms Illman has donated the discovery to the Western Australian Museum. The second-oldest bottle to be found was 108 years old.......

Battle against Isil 'paused in Syria' as Kurdish fighters battle Turkey

  
US-backed ground operations against Islamic State remnants in eastern Syria have been put on hold because Kurds who had spearheaded combat against the extremists have shifted to a separate fight with Turkish forces, US officials have said. The public acknowledgement of what Col Rob Manning, a Pentagon spokesman, called an "operational pause" is the most explicit sign yet that Turkey's intervention in the Kurdish-held enclave of Afrin is hindering the US effort to finish off Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) in Syria. For weeks, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and other US officials have called Turkey's operation a "distraction" from the anti-Isil campaign. Mattis also has said the US understands that Turkey has an active Kurdish insurgency inside its own borders and that it views Syrian Kurdish People's Protection Units, or YPG, to be a terrorist organisation. The US says the YPG is separate from the Kurdish fighters inside the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, but Turkey disagrees. A member of the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) takes part in a demonstration alongside Syrian-Kurds in the town of Amuda Credit: AFP Turkey launched its air and ground offensive in the Afrin enclave on January 20, conducting airstrikes and artillery strikes on a daily basis. It is just one dimension of a complex war in Syria that includes a range of local opposition fighters, extremist elements, Syrian government troops, proxy forces and military units from Russia and the United States. Manning said that although ground operations against IS in the Euphrates River Valley have been temporarily suspended, US airstrikes against Isil holdouts in that area are continuing. He said one airstrike Sunday near the city of Abu Kamal destroyed two Isil supply routes. "The nature of our mission in Syria has not changed," Manning said. He said the Syrian Democratic Forces, which are comprised of Kurdish as well as Arab fighters, remain "our major partner" in completing the war against IS in Syria. Another Pentagon spokesman, Maj Adrian Rankine-Galloway, said he could not offer an estimate of the number of Kurdish fighters who have left the Euphrates River Valley battlefield to join the fight against Turks in Afrin. "They're not fighting ISIS any more, and that basically meant that they're not taking territory back from ISIS as quickly as they had been in the past," Rankine-Galloway said. He added that the pause in offensive ground operations has not resulted in the loss of any territory retaken from Isil. ......
