LONDON - A former Russian spy and fierce critic of the Kremlin who is fighting for his life in a London hospital may have been given a radioactive poison, a doctor said Tuesday.

Col. Alexander Litvinenko, an outspoken former KGB and Federal Security Service agent, ?has some symptoms consistent with thallium poisoning and he?s also got symptoms consistent with some other type of poisoning, so it?s not 100 percent thallium,? Dr. John Henry, a clinical toxicologist at University College Hospital, told reporters.

?It could be radioactive thallium,? he said, adding that Litvinenko might require a bone marrow transplant
