Washington: The United States arrested Air National Guard employee Jack Teixeira on Thursday in connection with transmission of classified defence information, US Attorney General Merrick Garland said.

“FBI agents took Teixeira into custody earlier this afternoon without incident,” Garland said at a brief statement at the Justice Department.

Investigators believe that the guardsman, who specialises in intelligence, led the online chat group where the documents were posted.
