LONDON (AFP) - Experts in chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) emergencies have been deployed to the British property where Russian exile Boris Berezovsky was found dead, police said on Sunday.

"Specially trained officers are currently at the scene, including CBRN trained officers, who are conducting a number of searches as a precaution," a statement from Thames Valley Police said.

"This is to enable officers to carry out an investigation into the man's death. The body of the man is still in the property at this time."

Mr Berezovsky, a Russian oligarch and long-time critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin, was found dead at his home near Ascot, a well-heeled commuter town near London, on Saturday afternoon.
