The National Intelligence Service and prosecutors said Sunday that they 
had a female North Korean spy in custody who obtained 'confidential' 
information about companies and the National Police Agency from people 
she met through Internet chat rooms.

arrested on espionage charges, as had Oh Byung-doo, a 52-year-old former

The announcement comes at a time when inter-Korean relations are at 
their worst in years after the Seoul government confirmed last week that 
North Korea was behind the sinking of a South Korean warship in the West

the international community.

Also, it was made public with just 11 days remaining before the June 2 

According to prosecutors, Kim, disguised as a North Korean defector, 
crossed the border into China in February 2006 and worked as an 
accountant at a hotel in Zhangjiajie, Hunan Province. Running a 
cosmetics shop there independently, she lured some South Koreans into 
relationships through Internet chat rooms and obtained information on 
South Korea from them.
