The son of Kaspersky Lab founder Eugene Kaspersky, has been freed by Russian police, who foiled a kidnapping plot.

Russian police say they freed Ivan Kaspersky after luring the kidnappers to a meeting.

Five people were arrested in the raid, including the ringleader.

Ivan Kaspersky was kidnapped on Tuesday last week, and kidnappers had reportedly demanded a 3m euro ($4.3m) ransom.

Eugene Kaspersky is said to be the 125th richest man in Russia with a $808m fortune.
