Mexican national led North Korean embassy raid in Spain, local court says

The group attempted to pass the stolen data to the FBI, according to court documents

Correction at 1100 KST on 03/28/19: a previous version of this article said that Adrian Hong had attempted to sell information to the FBI, when in fact he only attempted to pass the information. It has been amended to reflect that fact. 

A Spanish court said Tuesday that a Mexican national led the dramatic break-in and robbery of North Korea's embassy in Spain on February 22, adding the group attempted to sell the stolen data to the FBI.
