BBC News: Former spy tests reveal 'objects' (23 November 2006)
X-rays on ex-Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko, who is ill in hospital in London, have shown up unusual objects that he apparently swallowed.

A source at University College Hospital told the BBC there were three objects of dense matter in his intestines.

The hospital said his condition deteriorated overnight and he is now "very serious" in intensive care.

It took them over 3 weeks to do this?

I'm sure not, it's just false info from the "friend" to keep the story in the news cycle.

News item from the same outlet 4 hours later says that "objects" are of no concern and thallium is unlikely. Goldfarb  and "spy" are mentioned in both.

I was afraid it would have seemed too callous to post this story under "klatsch". Will do next time.
