Former marine linked to North Korea embassy break-in released on bail

Christopher Ahn to be held under house arrest, may hold press conference next week

Christopher Ahn, a former U.S. marine accused of leading a February raid on the North Korean embassy in Madrid, was on Tuesday released on bail, a statement from his legal team said.

Ahn, who the U.S. government had previously argued represented a flight risk, will remain under house arrest "at an undisclosed location" pending hearings into his possible extradition to Spain.
