The Australian Government has expelled two diplomats from the Russian embassy in Canberra, in response to the nerve gas attack on double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter in England. The diplomats were both undeclared intelligence officers who are said to have been under surveillance by the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation. More than 100 Russian have now been expelled by 24 nations, with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull stating that the concerted response has sent a "clear and unequivocal message" to Russia in the wake of the assassination attempt. Russia continues to deny any involvement in the plot.
