Europe Editor and Presenter

There have been more diplomatic expulsions in response to the Salisbury nerve agent attack. NATO announced it was expelling seven Russian staff from its headquarters. President Putin, at the same time, is dealing with the political aftermath of the Siberian shopping mall fire which has left at least 64 dead, most of them children who were locked in a cinema. Protesters at the scene say they believe the death toll is much higher than the authorities are letting on.
