A deal to return ten Russian spies to Russia is in the works according to The New York Times.

A leading American spy being held in a Russian jail is expected to be freed in Vienna tomorrow.

Igor Sutyagin was jailed for fifteen years for passing nuclear secrets to the CIA in 2004.

Several other American spies are expected to be released also.

In return the Russian spies, including the 'Irish Americans' Richard and Cynthia Murphy pictured above are expecting to get a one way ticket to Moscow.
