NEW YORK (AP) - Federal authorities say three people are charged in connection with a Russian spy ring that tried to recruit New York City residents as intelligence sources.

The case was announced Monday by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara (bahr-AHR’-ah) and FBI officials.

They say one of the defendants served as a trade representative of the Russian Federation in New York. They say another posed as an employee in the Manhattan office of a Russian bank.

The bank employee was arrested Monday in the Bronx. The two other suspects are at large.
