Russian spy swap agents land in Moscow: witness

MOSCOW (Reuters) - A plane carrying Russian agents deported from the United States as part of a Cold War-style spy swap landed at a Moscow airport on Friday, a Reuters cameraman at the scene said.

The biggest spy swap since the Cold War took place on Friday when Russian and U.S. planes flew into Vienna to exchange agents, defusing an espionage drama that threatened improving relations.
