Russia Expels U.S. Diplomats

Russia today said that it would expel four United States Embassy officials for conduct "incompatible with diplomatic status." Russia also said it would soon expel 46 more U.S. diplomats. The retaliatory move follows Washington's announcement of the expulsion of 50 Russian diplomats from the U.S. suspected of being intelligence agents. Host Bob Edwards talks with NPR's Michelle Kelemen.
