The Obama administration is accusing an analyst who worked at the State Department of leaking top secret information about North Korea to a reporter.

It's the latest move in an aggressive campaign to crack down on leaks, even as the administration supports proposed legislation that would shield reporters from having to identify their sources.

Steven Kim, who worked at State as a federal contractor, is named in a federal indictment unsealed Friday.

The Justice Department says he passed information about U.S. intelligence about a foreign country to a Fox News reporter. The country is believed to be North Korea. He is pleading innocent.

The administration recently arrested an Army official for leaking documents to a website and charged a former intelligence official with leaking information about NSA mismanagement.
