The British government said the defector, a senior Soviet intelligence officer, was turned over to Britain after weeks of interrogation by the U. S, Central Intelligence Agency in Washington. The British said he was as important as any defector ,on either side since World War II. His identity was kept secret. Officials said he is being held at a secret headquarters in Britain for fear- the Russians might try to kidnap or kill him. Life in Danger "His life is in positive danger," one official said.

Penkovsky compromised a number of Soviet agents, a move that r apparently prompted the Russian now held by the British to defect.
