CIA May Be Behind February Attack on North Korean Embassy in Madrid

Two individuals involved in a violent attack on the North Korean embassy in Madrid have reportedly been linked by Spanish authorities to the Central Intelligence Agency.

The CIA has denied involvement in the attack.

El Confidencial said a police officer dispatched to the embassy was told everything was fine by a man who answered the door, but moments later, "the gates swung open ... and two high-end cars came out at great speed, leaving the area within seconds". They tied workers up inside and interrogated them, before making off with computers and cellphones.

Inside, the police reportedly found eight people tied up with bags over their heads. The cars used for the getaway belonged to the diplomatic mission and were later abandoned in a nearby street.

Investigators have said the attack was not the work of common criminals.

"The operation was perfectly planned as if it were carried out by a military cell, '"El País reported, citing sources close to the ongoing investigation".

Lead roles: North Korea leader Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump meet in Hanoi, Vietnam last month.

The CIA declined to comment to the BBC.

Kim Hyok-chol, North Korea's most recent ambassador to Spain, played a key role ahead of the summit, leading the negotiating team that received a U.S. delegation in Pyongyang last month to discuss denuclearisation.

The former North Korean ambassador to Spain was expelled from the country in September 2017 following Pyongyang's repeated nuclear tests and ballistic missile launches.

In February, Kim Hyok Chol also led the North Korean delegation that negotiated a nuclear disarmament plan with USA special envoy Stephen Biegun in exchange for sanctions to be lifted.

He also travelled to Washington DC with Kim Jong-un's right-hand man, Kim Yong-chol, in January. One of the employees managed to escape and report to the police.

If there is however a proven link with intelligence services, it could cause uproar both in North Korea and internationally. And breaking into another country's embassy would be a huge breach of global protocol.

However, government sources reportedly say proving the involvement of USA intelligence agencies could be hard.

A court in Madrid is in charge of the investigation into the break-in.

The only thing that's clear so far is that this story is just beginning.
