American couple sold secret plans for nuclear-powered American warships

An American couple has been arrested on charges of nuclear espionage. As the Justice Department in Washington announced Sunday, the duo sold secret plans for nuclear-powered US warships to an employee of the Federal Police FBI, whom they believed to be representative of a foreign government, for nearly a year.

The ministry said the 42-year-old husband worked as a nuclear engineer for the US Navy. Through his work, he had access to secret data on nuclear-powered submarines, which he and his wife (45) sold in crypto currency for a total of about $100,000 (86,400 francs).
