Russia’s FSB state security agency says it has arrested a US citizen “caught spying” in Moscow.

It named him as Paul Whelan, saying he was arrested in Moscow on 28 December and charged with “espionage”.

The FSB, Russia’s main counter-espionage service, gave no further details.

If found guilty, he faces between 10 and 20 years in jail, Russia’s Tass news agency reports. There has been no US confirmation yet.
