    SEOUL - A two-star South Korean army general was arrested June 9, accused of leaking the country's war plan and other secrets to North Korea, a news report said.

    The Defence Security Command had asked military prosecutors to arrest the major-general identified only as Kim for leaking classified information, Yonhap news agency said.A defense ministry spokesman declined to comment on the report.

    The leaked secrets include a military operation to be carried out in case of all-out war with North Korea, Yonhap said.

    The arrest of the general followed the June 3 detention of two people accused of handing over military secrets to North Korea, Yonhap said.

    It said one of them was a former spy for South Korea who acquired military secrets through the general and handed them to a North Korean agent in China in return for an unspecified payment.

    The South periodically detains people accused of spying for its communist neighbor.

    A female North Korean spy arrested last month used sex to secure sensitive information on Seoul's subway system, prosecutors have said.

    In another case, a female North Korean spy was arrested and jailed for five years in 2008. She had admitted having sex with a South Korean army officer to secure secret information.
