Mystery group tied to break-in at DPRK embassy in Madrid will suspend activities

Cheollima Civil Defense still committed to the "overthrow" of the DPRK government, statement says

The shadowy underground organization which this week claimed responsibility for a February break-in at the North Korean embassy in Madrid on Thursday said it would "temporarily" suspend all pending activities.

In a statement in Korean posted on the group's official website, Cheollima Civil Defense said that criticism from the international press had left its membership with no choice but to call off activity for the time being.
