LONDON (AP) — THE Latest on the nerve agent attack on a Russian ex-spy and his daughter in Britain (all times local):

4:50 p.m.

Russia says it won’t accept any conclusions on the poisoning of a Russian ex-spy unless it gets full access to evidence in the case.

A report by investigators at the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons confirmed British findings that double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia were poisoned with a military-grade nerve agent on March 4, but didn’t identify its source. Britain blamed Russia for the attack, and Moscow fervently denied the accusations.
