Russia's 'spies' in the suburbs


Deleted, at user's request.

Most of the 11 people accused by the US of spying for Russia appear to have led middle-class, all-American lives, pursuing businesses, setting up home in leafy suburbs, raising families.

Donald Heathfield (all names here are as given in the indictment) had convinced a business contact in the UK he was an "aggressive American entrepreneur".

Anna Chapman described herself in a YouTube video as a "start-up" specialist looking to connect young professionals in New York and Moscow, with a business pedigree acquired in the UK.

Moscow confirmed that at least some of the suspects were Russian citizens, but there were few immediate details from within Russia itself.
