THE ARTICLE
Fromhttp://www.BreakingNewsEnglish.com/1007/100704-spying.html 
Anna Chapman, the woman accused of being a Russian spy, says shewants to stay in the United States. Her lawyer Robert Baum told theAssociated Press news agency that she fears being deported. MsChapman, 28, is one of 10 suspected spies uncovered by U.S. agencies.According to the FBI, they had been living undercover in the USA for upto 20 years. Chapman had only been in America for a few years. U.S.
authorities are charging her with “conspiring to act as an unregisteredagent of a foreign government”. If 
she is found guilty, she could go toprison for five years. Chapman, who was born Anna Kushchenko, wascaught by FBI agents at a Starbucks accepting a fake US passport from
an undercover agent. On her father‟s advice, she handed it in to a local
police station.Chapman says she is shocked about photos and information being postedon the Internet. She says the media are portraying her to be some kindof Mata Hari spy. Mr Baum said: "She was embarrassed by some of thephotos that were obviously taken from her Facebook pages. The truth is,she is probably no different than your typical single 28-year-old womanin New York City. She runs a successful business, goes out at night. She
dates men and enjoys a social life." Anna‟s ex
-husband, Englishbusinessman Ale
x Chapman, told Britain‟s „Daily Telegraph‟ newspaper: “Anna was an extremely passionate, caring and loving woman. She is
also extremely intelligent. She has an IQ of 162 and it showed, becauseshe was able to juggle so many things at once and make them a
success.”
