Poisoned ex-spy discharged from UK hospital

LONDON (AP) -

Doctors say former Russian spy Sergei Skripal has been discharged from a hospital, more than two months after he was poisoned with a nerve agent.

Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious in Salisbury, England on March. 

They spent weeks in critical condition.

Salisbury District Hospital said today both patients have now been released.

They have been taken to an undisclosed location for their safety. 

Britain says the pair was poisoned with a military-grade nerve agent and that Russia was behind the attack.

Moscow denies it, and the attack has created tension between Russia and the West.
