The UK will probe the suspected involvement of the Russian state into the death of Russian dissident and ex-spy Alexander Litvinenko, home secretary Theresa May said Tuesday. The 43-year old Litvinenko died of radioactive polonium poisoning in 2006, reportedly after having tea with two Russian men in a London hotel.
