A viewer asked: "What is the status of the children (some nearly adults) of these spies? Will they be deported, too?"

CBS News Correspondent Bob Orr answered from Washington that there are eight total children, six of them minors, among the four couples involved. Attorney General Eric Holder told us all eight will be repatriated, and we expect all of them to accompany their parents on the flight home.
