Russia's intelligence service has accused four British diplomats of spying, charging that their espionage efforts in part involved the use of communications gear hidden in a fake rock located in the vicinity of Moscow. The accusations were first made public on state-run Rossiya television Sunday night, and grainy images of an alleged British spy handling the rock--including those shown here--were picked up for wider broadcast by the Euronews channel.
