A group is being prosecuted in connection with the death of an Air Force officer

Fifteen people have been charged in connection with the death of a South Korean air force officer.

According to foreign sources, the officer had committed suicide after being sexually abused by a colleague.

It is said that disciplinary action has been taken against 12 other Air Force personnel for attempting to cover up the incident.

The commander of the South Korean Air Force also resigned in June due to public outcry over the incident.
