FBI “must have clapped collective hands” at outdated Russian spying methods

We also look at the Brazilian papers the day after their victory over Chile, Canadian papers analysing the huge number of arrests at last weekend’s G20 summit and finally the Daily Mail has a story of an owner reunited with his dog after five years.
