In London, Alexander Litvinenko, the onetime KGB colonel, met his fate, killed by an unknown poison administered by an unknown killer. Both ABC and CBS assigned reporters to update the continuing intrigue. CBS' Richard Roth recalled that Litvinenko "pointed a very public finger at a fellow former spy, Vladimir Putin," for the assassination of Moscow journalist Anna Politskovskaya. ABC's Jim Sciutto (subscription required) repeated the Kremlin's "emphatic denial."
In Rome, there is a potentially significant shift in the Vatican's thinking. CBS' Allen Pizzey predicted that the Catholic Church will almost certainly relax its condemnation of condoms for married couples in circumstances where one partner is HIV-positive. Pizzey called it a small but "historic shift." Nevertheless, radical change can take centuries."
