Cheollima Civil Defense claims responsibility for raid on DPRK embassy in Madrid

Move comes just hours after Spanish High Court names suspects in embassy attack investigation

A shadowy underground North Korean "government-in-exile" on Tuesday claimed responsibility for a mysterious raid last month on the DPRK embassy in Spanish capital of Madrid.

In a statement that comes following weeks of speculation over who was responsible for the raid -- which has been reported to have seen embassy staff bound and gagged and equipment stolen -- Cheollima insisted that the incident was "not an attack."
