South Korea's defense ministry said Tuesday it has launched an investigation into allegations that its Cyber Warfare Command posted online messages in favor of the ruling camp during last year's presidential campaign, shedding light on the secretive unit.

The ministry established the 400-member special unit under its wing in 2010 to expand its warfare capability on cyber space and counter threats from North Korea, which is believed to have trained professional hackers and attacked the South Korean government's and companies' websites.
