LONDON  — Britain's Guardian newspaper said Monday that its Moscow correspondent has been expelled from Russia after using WikiLeaks' cables to report on allegations that Russia under the rule of Vladimir Putin had become a "virtual mafia state."

Editor-in-chief Alan Rusbridger said Luke Harding, who had been back in London for two months reporting on the contents of leaked US diplomatic cables, was refused entry by Russian authorities when he tried to return to Moscow last weekend.

Rusbridger said in a statement that Harding was immediately placed on a return flight to Britain. The editor said it was a "very troubling development" and that the paper is trying to establish further details.
