Russia expels US embassy staff

Russia has ordered the expulsion of two military attaches from the American embassy in Moscow, US officials say.

The US state department said it would comply with the order although it objected to it. Two Russians have been expelled from Washington in recent months, one in November and the second on 22 April. The news comes as Russia conducts a transition of power with Vladimir Putin becoming prime minister and Dmitry Medvedev president.

The cold war continues!
