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.

They said the 36-year-old woman, identified as Kim Soon-nyeo, had been 
arrested on espionage charges, as had Oh Byung-doo, a 52-year-old former 
executive of the Seoul Metro subway service, who supported her 
financially.

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 
Sea on March 26, killing 46 sailors. President Lee Myung-bak has vowed 
to take 'resolute countermeasures' against the North in cooperation with 
the international community.

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

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.
