UK Skripal suspects: ‘We were just tourists in Salisbury’

Two men named as suspects in the poisoning of a Russian ex-spy in the UK have said they were merely tourists.
The men, named as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, told the state-run RT channel they had travelled to Salisbury on the recommendation of friends.
The UK believes the men are Russian military intelligence officers who tried to kill Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury last March.
Appearing nervous and uncomfortable, the men confirmed their names as those announced by the UK investigators – Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov. “Those are our real names,” they said.
The men said they worked in the sports nutrition business and had travelled to London for a short holiday, fitting in a couple of day trips to Salisbury.
