    South Korean prosecutors say they have indicted five men on charges of spying for North Korea.

    The prosecutors said Thursday the five belonged to an anti-state organization named after a North Korean mountain, and have been passing sensitive information to North Korea's intelligence agency for more than a decade.

    They said the information they passed included satellite photos of South Korean military bases, U.S. military field manuals and information on South Korean politicians.

    A conviction under South Korea's national security law carries the possibility of capital punishment.

    Some information for this report was provided by AP, AFP and Reuters.
