NATO leaders unite in blaming Russia for nerve agent attack on ex-spy

On March 14, UK Prime Minister Theresa May announced the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats in response to a March 4 "military grade" nerve agent attack that poisoned former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, as well as a police detective who visited his home in Salisbury, England. Dozens of other people may have also been exposed to the nerve agent in a pub and restaurant the Skripals visited before they were found unconscious on a bench.

UK law enforcement and security officials have said that the nerve agent used in the attack was one of a series of chemical weapons developed by the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War known as Novichok, or "newcomer." Today, the leaders of the UK, the US, France, and Germany issued a joint statement condemning Russia for the attack, stating that it "constitutes the first offensive use of a nerve agent in Europe since the Second World War," and demanding full disclosure of the Novichok program by Russia to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg offered "practical support" if May's government requests it, saying the attack "has no place in a civilized world." And further diplomatic action from France and Germany against Russia is expected.

Winter storms aren't exactly a rarity for Londoners, but this particular storm front was uniquely harsh. It originated in Siberia and had been making its way across the continent for several days before finally striking the UK, earning the nickname "The Beast From The East" along the way.

The storm had already been blamed for a handful of deaths before it arrived in London, so its reputation as a deadly weather system preceded it, but it gained legitimate celebrity status thanks to a photo captured by a police helicopter. As the storm front began to swallow London, the chopper captured a truly stunning photo that is equal parts awesome and terrifying.
