FBI Movie Warns Students Going Abroad of Being Drawn Into ‘Game of Pawns’

For American college students, studying abroad is an opportunity to explore a new country, sample a unfamiliar culture, and meet people from very different backgrounds. But the Federal Bureau of Investigation is worried that some of those new friends might actually be foreign spies.

The FBI has produced a new film, Game of Pawns, to warn students of the "possibility that a foreign intelligence service might try to recruit them while abroad to eventually steal secrets from the U.S. government."
