Russian accused of hacking detained by U.S. until trial begins

A Russian accused of hacking U.S. retailers’ computer systems to steal credit card data has been ordered by a Washington State judge to be held pending his trial in October, citing risks that he could flee the country, prosecutors said.

The arrest of Roman Seleznev, the 30-year-old son of a deputy in Russia’s lower house of parliament, has increased tensions between the two countries, already at their worst since the end of the Cold War over the Ukraine crisis.
