Rhee Cheol-hee, a member of the ruling Democratic Party, said in an interview with local media published on Tuesday that the hackers had broken into South Korea's defense data center in September past year and snatched a trove of classified military documents.

Pyongyang's secret army of hackers broke into the intranet of South Korea's Defence Ministry in August and September past year and compromised a large cache of classified documents, Rhee Cheol-hee, a local politician said.

However, Mr Rhee said the hackers had accessed OPLAN 5015, which is part of the most recent blueprint for war with North Korea that was drawn up by Seoul and Washington in 2015.

Those plans also included procedures for "decapitation" attacks against top North Korean leaders, Chosun Ilbo reported Rhee as saying. He said that 235 gigabytes worth of military documents were taken with the content of almost 80 percent of them yet to be identified.

Seoul says North Korea has repeatedly staged cyberattacks on South Korean business and government websites.

In the midst of these developments, Donald Trump, the US President recently told that "only one thing will work" with Kim Jong-Un.

In the 82nd minute of the game, Jeakson Singh leaped off the turf and into Indian sporting history. On Friday too, India had failed to score after the ball hit the woodwork.

The visit that is already proving to be a nightmare for Trump's security team, would be a bold move for the American President especially since he would be standing mere metres away from Kim Jong-un's heavily armed soldiers. According to reports, South Korea is developing a non-lethal bomb meant to knock out entire electrical grids, leaving their opponents to fight in the dark without the use of any electronic weaponry. Also, according to the Deputy, in the hands of the hackers was the report of the South Korean military to his allies.

The new weapon is being developed under South Korea's Kill Chain pre-emptive strike program, an initiative exclusively aimed to detect and intercept missiles from North Korea within the shortest time.

Apart from continuously testing missiles, in defiances of United Nations sanctions, North Korea touted the successful development of an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) that can reach U.S. Mainland and any part of the world.

The two nations have been at verbal loggerheads over the North's nuclear activities, with the USA pressing for a halt to missile tests and Pyongyang vowing to continue them.
