Cyprus police arrest suspect in US-Russia spy case

A man suspected of being the 11th member of a US spy ring allegedly working for Russia has been arrested and released on bail in Cyprus, police said on Tuesday.

 

Robert Christopher Metsos, 55, was arrested at Cyprus's Larnaca airport as he tried to leave the island for Budapest early on Tuesday, police said. A magistrate released Metsos on bail of 20,000 euros ($24,410) bail to reappear in court within 30 days, when an extradition hearing will start. (Reuters)
