One Russian Security Agency Raids Another, in Rare Sign of Dysfunction

Three senior prosecutors were arrested as the main domestic intelligence service searched the Moscow offices of a powerful branch of the prosecutor’s office.

Agents of the Federal Security Service, or F.S.B., the main successor to the Soviet K.G.B., searched the offices of the Investigative Committee, the powerful branch of the prosecutor’s office that deals with politically hued crimes.

The raid was all the more baffling because the two agencies are generally viewed as operating in lock step to repress political dissent, crack down on organized crime and pursue other high-profile cases in the capital.
