Mini-Cameras In Moscow Spy Trial.

Moscow -- Three miniature cameras, micro films, and a cigarette packet used to hide the films -- these were some of the things, claim Russian authorities, that were taken from Soviet scientific worker Oleg Penkovsky. Another picture issued by the Russians showed a transistor radio which they claim was used by Penkovsky to "receive instructions" from U.S. and British Intelligence Headquarters. Penkovsky went on trial in Moscow today charged jointly with spying with British businessman Greville Wynne 42. Both pleaded guilty at the opening of the trial. (1963)
