Former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko died after an apparent poisoning led to a mysterious and rapid decline in his health - which left doctors unable to verify his cause of death and led friends on Friday to accuse the Kremlin of murder. Litvinenko, a vociferous critic of the Russian government, suffered heart failure on Thursday following days of intensive care and extensive medical tests, London's University College Hospital said in a statement.

Dr. Geoff Bellingan, the hospital's director of critical care, acknowledged he had no clue as to the cause of the patient's sudden death.
