Daniel Soar: Terror Plots, 21 October 2010

... You remember the scenario: on 5 January 2003 a number of Algerians were arrested in Wood Green and charged with manufacturing ricin, a poison that had lingered in the public consciousness since the killing of a Bulgarian dissident on Waterloo Bridge in 1978 with a ricin-filled dart fired from an umbrella.
