Thirteen Russians charged over 2016 US election meddling

Thirteen Russians charged with 'conspiracy to defraud the United States', Special Counsel Robert Mueller says.

    The FBI has indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies over alleged tampering with the 2016 US presidential election.

    The office of the Special Counsel Robert Mueller describes it as a criminal and espionage conspiracy.

    Crucially, the indictment does not suggest any collusion between the Russians and Trump's campaign.
