LONDON (AP) – The FBI is joining the British probe into the poisoning death of a Kremlin critic, the agency announced yesterday as investigators found traces of radiation at a dozen sites in Britain and a former Russian prime minister reported symptoms of poisoning.

British authorities requested the involvement of the FBI, agency spokesman Richard Kolko said. FBI experts in weapons of mass destruction will assist with some of the scientific analysis, he said.

There is no suspected link to the U.S. in an investigation that extends to five airliners and locations from London to Moscow.
