US indicts Chinese government hackers over attacks in 12 countries

In an operation coordinated with US allies in Europe and Asia, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein says the move was being made to rebuff “China’s economic aggression.”

“We want China to cease its illegal cyber activities,” Rosenstein says.
