NEW YORK — An indictment has been returned in New York against 11 defendants accused of spying for Russia on Wednesday.

The indictment unsealed in federal court in Manhattan charged all 11 defendants with conspiring to act as secret agents in the United States on behalf of the Russian Federation.

Nine of the defendants were also charged with conspiracy to commit money laundering.

The 11 defendants who were arrested last week already faced the same charges in criminal complaints.
