How many passports does this guy have?

What is the deal with Paul Whelan, the "American" who was arrested in Russia on espionage charges this week? I put American in scare-quotes because, although he is an American citizen, his is also apparently a citizen of Britain, Ireland, and, because he was born in Canada, he probably also has Canadian citizenship.
