POISON PELLET WEAPONS

Designed by the KGB,
the poison-pellet umbrella 
was used in the assassination 
of Bulgarian dissident Georgi 
Markov in London. A jab with 
an umbrella at a bus stop -- 
easily dismissed as a meaningless
 accident -- delivered a pellet of
 ricin, a poison derived from 
castor-oil seeds. Markov was dead 
soon after.
