A US counter-terrorism analyst has been arrested for allegedly leaking classified information to two journalists over the last two years.
US Defense Intelligence Agency analyst Henry Frese is accused of divulging top secret reports, including details about a foreign country’s weapons system.
Officials say he was romantically involved with one of the two journalists.
Mr Frese is expected to appear in federal court in Virginia.
The indictment alleges Mr Frese, 30, knew that unauthorised sharing of this top secret information could “cause exceptionally grave damage to the national security of the United States”.
