Deja Vu-the KGB used the Bulgarians to kill a critic in England a few years back. The poison was in the tip of an umbrella, that was used to inject the poison into the defector whose name escapes me...

The dissident that was assassinated (Georgi Markov) was a Bulgarian and most likely KGB's role was limited to granting a permission to the Bulgarian Communists to kill him. Markov (formerly an aparatchik himself) had been annoying the Bulgarian dictator for a while.

If I remember correctly, it was Ricin on a bb sized pellet. It was a long slow and painfull death. Several times there have be Ricin concerns in the WOT.
