Update (Jan 30, 2006): Russian intelligence agency said that the communications device disguised as a rock by British spies is a "miracle of technology".
"It's a piece of space-age technology, a machine that can withstand a fall from from nine floors up and prolonged submersion in water," said Sergei Ignachenko, spokesman for the FSB agency, as he showed off the object to the media.
Previously (Jan 26, 2006): Russian intelligence agency caught British diplomats red-handed fiddling with some sort of electronic spying device disguised as a rock.
Unfortunately for the alleged spies, the rock's wiring was temperamental. In one clip, an agent was filmed pretending to relieve himself in shrubs as he fiddled with its sophisticated electronics. In another, the rugby-ball sized stone was picked up and carted away for repairs.
