Bulgarian charged with trying to steal US secrets

A Bulgarian trade official who was caught carrying secret US documents on nuclear energy was arraigned Saturday on espionage charges and held without bail pending a hearing Oct. 4.

In the complaint filed by the government, Penyu Kostadinov was accused of taking a classified document called the ''Report on Inspection of the Nevada Operations Office.'' He also was accused of giving a confidential US source a list of secret documents he wanted to obtain. Authorities said he got the material with the aid of an unidentified American graduate student, who was working with the FBI.
