Marina Litvinenko, center, the widow of former Russian intelligence officer Alexander Litvinenko, is flanked by security workers whilst speaking to a journalist as she leaves at the end of a Pre-Inquest Review at Camden Town Hall in London, Thursday, Dec. 13, 2012. A lawyer has told a British inquest into the poisoning death of former Russian agent Alexander Litvinenko that an initial assessment of evidence showed that the Russian state was responsible for his murder. Hugh Davies, the inquest's counsel, told a London hearing that a "high-level assessment" of material provided by the British government "does establish a case for the Russian state's culpability" in the murder of Litvinenko, who died in November 2006 after drinking tea laced with the rare radioactive isotope polonium-210 at a London hotel.
