An Armenian-led ring of 73 criminals has been arrested in the US for allegedly using non-existent clinics and identity theft to file fraudulent claims, bilking the US government medical insurance programme Medicare out of $163m.

Federal prosecutors have brought charges against them, most of whom were captured during raids Wednesday morning in New York City and Los Angeles.
