Russia expels Israeli attache for spying

RUSSIA has expelled Israel’s military attache at its Moscow embassy on spying allegations, Israeli defence officials said overnight, dismissing the charges as unfounded.

The officials said Air Force Colonel Vadim Leiderman returned to Israel several days ago after being questioned by Russian authorities over espionage allegations, then told to leave the country immediately.

Israel’s state-run Channel One television said the Russians released him without charges owing to his diplomatic immunity.
