The lawmaker father of a Russian man detained by the US on hacking charges warned Friday his son would die without medical help, raising the stakes in the latest spat between Moscow and Washington. Russia has accused US authorities of abducting Roman Seleznev in the Maldives and secretly transporting him to the American territory of Guam in a case that further piqued Kremlin's anger amid a showdown over Ukraine. The 30-year-old man is suspected of being one of the world's most prolific traffickers of stolen credit card details. He is accused by US authorities of hacking into retail computer systems and installing malicious software to steal credit card numbers between October 2009 and February 2011.
