US soldier arrested for selling defense secrets to China

WASHINGTON: A US Army intelligence analyst was arrested on Thursday for allegedly providing national defense information to China.

Sergeant Korbein Schultz, who held a top-secret security clearance, was taken into custody at Fort Campbell, a military base on the Kentucky-Tennessee border, the Justice Department said in a statement.

Schultz’ indictment did not identify the country he was allegedly supplying with sensitive military information, but press reports identified it as China.
