New Suspect in Russian Spy Ring

Can we trade him for Anna Chapman? A 12th person suspected of being a part of the Russian spy ring has been detained, The Wall Street Journal reports. The man, 23, came to the U.S. in October 2009, and investigators began monitoring him shortly afterward, but his name was not disclosed when the spy ring case was made public earlier in June. The man’s name is still not public, and it’s unclear what his role in the ring might be. Investigators weren’t able to get enough evidence of his participation in a spy plot; he’s currently not in custody as deportation paperwork is being processed.
