    Seoul, South Korea, Jun. 26 (UPI) -- South Korea's National Police 
    Agency has announced plans to create an anti-cyber terror unit within 
    the year, the Korea Times reported.
    The announcement follows recent government agency network hackings and 
    the spread of images of beheaded Korean translator Kim Sun-il in Iraq. 
    "The envisioned unit will consist of 110 people and will be headed by 
    a high-ranking police officer," an NPA official said. 
    A small division of the police agency has so far assumed full 
    responsibility for coping with cyber terror.
