U.S. diplomat detained in Moscow, accused of spying on Russia

An American diplomat has been detained by the Russian State Security Service and accused of trying to recruit a Russian officer to work as a U.S. agent, Russian wire services reported on Tuesday.

The diplomat, Ryan C. Fogle, is listed as third secretary in the political section at the U.S. Embassy. The Russian security service, known by the acronym FSB, alleged that the U.S. post is a cover and that Fogle is actually a CIA agent. He was detained Monday night or early Tuesday morning, and turned over to U.S. Embassy officials later Tuesday.
