An extract of a Jane's article on the recent issues surrounding the usage of polonium-210 to kill Alexander Litvinenko, a Russian dissident staying in London. The BBC World Service has also done a 2 part radio documentary on this area. This incident highlights the possible use of the same substance to target larger groups, as a terrorist weapon.
