A group of men who allegedly tried to force major computer maker Fujitsu Ltd. into buying defense information apparently leaked from the company had threatened to sell it to North Korea, police said Wednesday.

Three men, including a former member of the Maritime Self-Defense Force, allegedly told Fujitsu they had stopped someone else from selling the data to the North, police said, without identifying the trio.
