First Deep Throat Now Poison Umbrella Man

Quote:
The identity of the secret agent who assassinated Georgi Markov, the Bulgarian dissident, with a poison pellet umbrella on Waterloo Bridge in London has finally been revealed.

Leaked intelligence documents have named Francesco Giullino, a Dane of Italian origin who worked for the Bulgarian secret service, as the hitman who carried out the murder 26 years ago.

I had never heard about Georgi Markov,so thank you for starting this thread.

I did a bit of googling,and his story intrigues me.I found a book written by him on Amazon,and I might buy it.

One wonders whether there were other similar assassinations carried out by intelligence services that we don't know about.

(Cue X-Files theme music)

Any Kennedy buff knows about the pitcture of the umbrella man in Dealy Plaza.....

Just shortly before the President clutched his throat.....allegedly from the first shot.

True, true.

I wasn't thinking of that specifically but it might have been in the back of my subconscious.
