Russia: December 25, 2000


Police arrested more than twenty suspected Chechen terrorists around the southern city of Volgograd (formerly Stalingrad). The suspects were accused of planning a bombing campaign.

Many of the spies were operating under diplomatic immunity and many were from the Middle East.
