In what appeared to be a goodwill gesture, a former official delivered two cakes laced with thallium.

Soon to be a former person.

So this was just your average everyday Iraqi disagreement, not jihadi terrorism.

I remember the stories of thallium poisoning during the Saddam years. Gruesome. I believe it began with the KGB, who used it on particularly obstreperous exiled dissidents they wanted to make an example of. That and ricin.

Apparently there is an antidote to thallium poisoning. Prussian blue:

Among the distinctive effects of thallium poisoning are loss of hair (which led it to its initial use as a depilatory before its toxicity was properly appreciated) and damage to peripheral nerves (victims may experience a sensation of walking on hot coals). Thallium was once an effective murder weapon before its effects became understood, and an antidote (prussian blue) discovered.

It then causes a lingering and painful death. An antidote known as Prussian Blue can be effective if taken quickly.
