    Did Yugoslav dictator Tito poison Stalin? Historian claims he killed rival after being the target of 22 Soviet assassination attempts


    Tito's letter in Stalin's office read: 'Stop sending people to kill me. We've already captured five of them, one of them with a bomb and another with a rifle... If you don't stop sending killers, I'll send one to Moscow, and I won't have to send a second.'
