(Washington, DC)  --  A 23-year-old Russian man has become the 12th person to be detained by U.S. authorities for spying.  According to "The Wall Street Journal," the FBI had been tailing the Russian since he arrived in America last fall.  The name of the alleged spy has not been released.  The man was reportedly in custody Monday and was going through the process of being deported.

Last month, Justice Department officials arrested ten suspected Russian spies living in the U.S.  Last Friday, they were all part of a swap with four people in Russia who were jailed for allegedly spying for the CIA.  An eleventh suspect jumped bail last week in Cyprus after his arrest.
