Georgia arrests 20 alleged Russian spies-sources

TBILISI, Oct 29 (Reuters) - Georgian police detained 20 people on suspicion of spying for Russia, Georgian security sources said on Friday, a move which could add to tensions two years after the nations fought a brief war.

The detainees, all Georgian citizens, were suspected of creating a spy network in the ex-Soviet nation and delivering secret information to Russia, the sources told Reuters on condition of anonymity. (Reporting by Margarita Antidze; Editing by Angus MacSwan)
