Daughter of ex-Russian spy leaves hospital
LONDON (AP)- A hospital official has confirmed that Yulia Skripal, one of two Russian targets of nerve agent poisoning, has been discharged.

Officials said Tuesday she will continue to need medical care as she recovers from the March 4 attack.

Dr. Christine Blanshard said: "This is not the end of her treatment but marks a significant milestone."

Officials say her father, ex-spy Sergei Skripal, continues to improve in hospital. His release date has not been set.

The two were poisoned March 4 in an attack that has led to a prolonged confrontation between Russia and Britain.

Britain blames the Russian government for the incident. Russia denies all involvement.
