MOSCOW, Russia (CNN) -- Russia's internal security service has accused four British Embassy employees of conducting a high-tech spying operation that included using an "advanced electronic spy gadget" in a fake rock, news agencies reported.

"An electronic cache from the British intelligence service was seized by counterintelligence," Interfax quoted Federal Security Service (FSB) chief spokesman Sergei Ignatchenko as saying Monday.

Yeah, I caught wind of it. I'm sure the MI people weren't excited about the press release, though.

But, you better believe that the FSB took their time analyzing the circuitry before releasing the story.  yes

Sounds like we've been caught red-handed. Big grin

Certainly a lack of denials coming out of either the Embassy or the government.

Every country does it and every country is outraged when its done against them.

Look at the spying that went on in Sin Feins Stormount offices.

10 million Pounds?
Damn, and I thought the rock they sell down the street was expensive.

"This is like space technology in its qualities. You could throw this stone from the 9th floor, it can survive a long period in water, it has several different kinds of defense," Ignatchenko said in televised comments.

I wonder what that means? Does it have an electric field? Doesn't a regular rock surive a long period in water? Does it have SCUBA gear?
