Justice Dept. set to announce charges in Sony Pictures hack

By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department is preparing to announce charges in connection with the hack of Sony Pictures Entertainment in 2014.

A U.S. government official familiar the criminal case says authorities will charge a North Korean who's believed to have operated out of China. Authorities have said previously that North Korea was responsible for the cyberattack.

The official wasn't authorized to publicly discuss the matter before the department's announcement and spoke on condition of anonymity.
