Daughter of poisoned Russian spy speaks out after UK attack

Police in London have released a statement from Sergei Skripal's daughter, Yulia, shortly after Russian TV played a purported phone call between Yulia and her cousin, Viktoria.

    The woman at the centre of a spy poisoning row that has caused the worst diplomatic crisis between Russia and the West since the Cold War has spoken out for the first time.

    Yulia Skripal, who was poisoned alongside her former spy father, Sergei, in southern England last month, called the whole episode "disorientating", but said she is recovering and her strength is growing daily.

    Al Jazeera's Laurence Lee reports.
