Government in China captured a spy. He told officials that a woman contacted him on the internet. She paid him to subscribe to secret military publicationa.

The man leaked 13 top secret documents and other information about military bases. The total number of pieces of information was around 2,000.

The USA spied on China, so China is working to increase its security.

Difficult words: official (somebody who is in a position of authority), subscribe (to get a magazine regularly), leak (to give secret information).
