Britain's Health Protection Agency confirmed Friday that one person has tested positive for the same toxin that killed a former Russian spy. The health agency declined to identify the infected person. However, British media reports said that Mario Scaramella, who was one of the last people to see former Soviet spy Alexander Litvinenko before he fell ill, had tested positive for a significant amount of polonium-210.
