Do you like James Bond? There was a killing in the United Kingdom (Britain) last month that seems lifted right out of a spy movie.

00:21
On March 4th, 2018 a man named Sergei Skripal and his daughter were found unconscious on a bench outside of a church in Salisbury, United Kingdom. Sergei died from a nerve agent, which is a kind of poison.

00:42
On March 23rd, the British government expelled 23 Russians from their country because the UK believes Russia poisoned Mr. Skripal and his daughter.

00:55
Because the poison was so pure, the UK government blames the Russian government. This poison was created in Russia in the 1970s and 1980s.

01:10
When he was younger, Sergei Skripal was actually a spy for Russia. In the 1990s, he betrayed Russia and started working as a spy for the MI6, the same organization that James Bond works for.

01:31
“MI6” stands for “Military Intelligence division 6.” It is the British version of the American CIA. They spy on other governments and terrorists.

01:48
Although the James Bond movies are fun and exciting, Skripal’s story shows us that being a spy is actually a very dangerous job.
