Two Russian nationals have been charged with money laundering by detectives investigating a £2m computer malware attack on UK banks.
Vugar Mollachiev, 37, and Abdurahman Bazaev, 48, both from Winchmore Hill, north London, were arrested by the Metropolitan police Falcon cybercrime unit on Friday.
They were detained on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud UK clearing banks of a sum in excess of £2m, the Met said.
Officers also seized a number of computers, which will be subject to forensic analysis.
The pair have been charged with conspiracy to commit fraud by false representation and with money laundering and will appear in custody at Westminster magistrates court on Monday.
