'Russia spies' on trial in Germany


A couple in Germany have gone on trial for spying for the former Soviet Union and then Russia, in what is being called one of the most intriguing cases since the end of the Cold War.

The couple, codenamed Andreas and Heidrun Anschlag, are said to have used false passports some 25 years ago to settle in what was then West Germany.

Steven Evans reports from Berlin.
