CIA-linked Madrid embassy invaders alleged to have assaulted N. Korean diplomats

Activists linked to Cheollima Civil Defense group beat embassy staff "pretty badly," source says

A group comprised of at least two members with links to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) used violence against diplomatic staff during a break-in at North Korea's embassy in Madrid last month, a source with knowledge of Spain's investigation and legal documents suggested on Wednesday.

"They beat them pretty badly," the source said, explaining that when a senior official responsible for commercial affairs refused to defect, the invaders "beat him again."
