"Russian ex-PM has mystery illness
Former Russian Prime Minister Yegor Gaidar is being treated in a Moscow 
hospital after falling violently ill on a trip to Ireland on 24 November.

Speculation is rife that he may have been poisoned. He fell ill a day after 
former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko died of radiation poisoning in 
Mr Gaidar's daughter Maria said "doctors incline towards the view that his 
symptoms... indicate poisoning".
Mr Gaidar was rushed to intensive care in Dublin, then flown to Moscow.
Mr Gaidar, 50, suffered from a nose bleed and vomiting before fainting in 
Dublin last Friday, during a visit to promote his book The Death of Empire: 
Lessons for Contemporary Russia.
His daughter was quoted as saying he had eaten "a simple breakfast of fruit 
salad and a cup of tea"."
