US Embassy Denies Reports it has 11th Spy Fugitive

NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) - A spokesman for the U.S. Embassy in
Cyprus has flatly denied local media reports that a fugitive spy
suspect is in U.S. custody at the embassy compound.
Christopher Metsos, an alleged paymaster for a Russian spy ring
in the U.S., vanished on the Mediterranean island Wednesday after
skipping bail, prompting a widespread manhunt by embarrassed
Cypriot authorities.
U.S. Embassy spokesman James Ellickson-Brown said Friday that
U.S. authorities have no knowledge of the 54-year-old's whereabouts
and the search effort for Metsos is entirely in the hands of
Cypriot authorities.
He is one of 11 suspects arrested in the spy ring.
