I am also not convinced.
People do strange things for all kinds of reasons.
I have a friend who was entitled to a number of flights to Europe from here and he was going to lose one trip if he didn't use it, he could not bring it forward. So he flew to Europe from here, (it was business class), stayed one and a half days in his country and flew back here. Total length of the excursion : five days, length of stay in Europe one and a half days.
One of my previous employers gave me an extra luggage allocation of fifty kilos, one allocation to fly to Europe and one to come back. I tried to change the allocation so I could bring back one hundred kilo from Europe, you know, coffee and all kinds of useful stuff which at that time was not easily available here. They refused, they said it is fifty kilo going and fifty kilo coming back.
So fuck that. I left with a steel box containing fifty kilo mangoes as accompanied luggage, at a very high cost to my employer (which was a State).
And you know what ? They don't give a fuck.
So you see, people do stupid things for stupid reasons.
If those two jokers wanted to see that cathedral, we cannot accuse them of attempted murder. We should also not trust the security services when they say they found traces of that poison in their hotel. The secret services have lost their credibility, just like the media.
