Military hushing missing file of confidential information: sources
SEOUL, Dec. 30 (Yonhap) -- A USB memory drive containing military secrets has been missing for months, but authorities are refusing to launch an investigation and trying to hush the case, inside sources said Thursday.

An Army major at a front-line battalion in Gangwon Province lost the portable drive in July, according to the sources. He lied to his superiors, saying that he found the USB, but it was severely damaged and had to be discarded, they said.
