South Korea's defense ministry on Monday dismissed a three-star general for leaking sensitive information about a naval confrontation with North Korea to the media, officials said.
Lieutenant General Park Sung-Choon was fired from his job as head of the defense intelligence agency for the Joint Chiefs of Staff and will retire from the military, they said.
"The defense ministry has dismissed the director of the defense intelligence agency from the post," ministry spokesman Nam Dai-Yeon said in a statement.
