VIENNA - Doctors in Vienna say Ukrainian presidential candidate Viktor Yushchenko's mysterious illness was caused by dioxin poisoning.
Dr. Michael Zimpfer, director of the Rudolfinerhaus hospital, told reporters Saturday "there is no doubt" what caused the ailment.
"There were high concentrations of dioxin, most likely orally administered," he said. The doctors added the substance could have been put in his soup.
