Novichok used on Navalny ‘harder than previous forms’

Berlin: The novichok nerve agent used to poison Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny was “harder” than previous forms, Der Spiegel magazine reported the head of Germany’s foreign intelligence service as saying.

Bruno Kahl, head of Germany’s foreign intelligence service, informed what Spiegel termed a “secret meeting” about the potency of the poison, the magazine said, but did not give any other details of the meeting.
