Russian security agency open espionage case over poisoning suspect Lugovoi's claims

Russia's security agency said Friday that it has opened an espionage case in connection with claims made by Andrei Lugovoi, the suspect named by Britain in the radiation poisoning death of former agent Alexander Litvinenko in London last year.

The Federal Security Service did not name any suspects. Lugovoi last month claimed that both Litvinenko and his associate, Kremlin foe Boris Berezovsky, had contacts with Britain's MI6 foreign intelligence agency, and that Berezovsky had given British intelligence sensitive information about Russia.
