Over 20 countries expel over 100 Russian diplomats

The US and more than a dozen European nations decided to expel Russian diplomats on Monday. The coordinated action was seen as a joint punishment for Moscow's alleged poisoning of an ex-spy in Britain. The Trump administration said 60 diplomats would be expelled and the Russian consulate in Seattle closed. Over 20 countries have backed the US, ousting more than 100 Russian diplomats. Monday's announcements appear to involve the largest number of Russian expulsions since the Cold War.
