The Justice Department on Wednesday announced the arrest of a Chinese intelligence officer who was charged with economic espionage against U.S. aviation companies.

The officer was identified as Yanjun Xu, a Ministry of State Security intelligence officer who was extradited to the United States from Belgium on Tuesday. He was charged in a federal indictment with conspiracy and attempting to steal secrets from American aviation and aerospace companies.

Xu’s arrest is a rare prosecution of an MSS officer and highlights the Trump administration’s efforts to crack down on Chinese spying and technology theft.
