Ukrainian opposition leader Viktor Yushchenko’s mystery illness was caused by poisoning, his Vienna doctors say.

The doctors said extensive tests showed a form of dioxin had been used, leaving Mr Yushchenko’s face disfigured.

Mr Yushchenko was taken ill in September as he campaigned for the Ukrainian presidency. Mr Yushchenko’s supporters staged mass demonstrations to protest against election fraud, and the second round is now being re-run on 26 December.
