Russia says U.S. 'kidnapped' cyberhacking suspect

Russia is accusing the Obama administration of kidnapping a lawmaker's son who was arrested in the Maldives for allegedly hacking U.S. restaurant and store computers to steal more than 200,000 credit- and debit-card numbers.

Secret Service agents seized Roman Seleznev, 30, on Saturday and whisked him away to Guam, where he is being detained after a hearing Monday in federal court. A July 22 hearing is set for his transfer to Seattle, where a grand jury indicted him in March 2011.
