British lawmaker denies aide is a Russian spy

An aide to a British lawmaker has been arrested and is facing expulsion from the country, the member of Parliament said Sunday, but he denied that she is a secret agent.

"She is not a Russian spy," Liberal Democrat MP Mike Hancock said Sunday of his aide Katia Zatuliveter.

She was detained Thursday, he said. The arrest did not become public until Sunday.
