SEOUL, Aug. 8 (Yonhap) -- A group of 13 Buddhist organizations called Thursday for a thorough parliamentary probe into the state intelligence agency's alleged intervention in the last presidential election and punishment of those found responsible.

The National Assembly began an investigation early last month to uncover the truth behind allegations that the National Intelligence Service (NIS) conducted an online smear campaign to sway public opinion in favor of the ruling Saenuri Party ahead of December's presidential election.
