Russian spy Anna Chapman given pro-Kremlin youth role


Anna Chapman, a Russian spy deported this year from the US, has been elected to a top role in the governing party's youth wing.

Ms Chapman was appointed to the public council of the Molodaya Gvardiya (Young Guard) which elected its leadership at a meeting in Moscow.

The glamorous former agent was at the centre of a spy ring uncovered by US authorities in June.
