On February 22 at 15:00 hours, 10 masked men entered the North Korean embassy in Madrid scaling the sidewall from an empty property. The incident took place just before the 2nd Trump-Kim summit in Hanoi. The assailants handcuffed, tortured, and interrogated the 8 workers of the legation present. They sought information on the work of Kim Hyuk Cole, the former North Korean Ambassador to Spain who headed the mission for 4 years after its opening in 2013. Kim Hyuk Cole was declared persona non grata by the Spanish authorities and expelled in September 2017 in response to Pyongyang’s ballistics tests. Kim Hyok Chol is currently one of Kim Jong Un’s highly trusted diplomats and was the interlocutor with the US administration during the February Trump-Kim summit on 27 and 28 of February. During the attack which lasted for more than 2 hours, a women employee managed to escape from the window and alerted a neighbor who informed the police. The assailants obtained several documents, computers and mobiles during the attack and used two embassy vehicles to escape. The vehicles were abandoned in the vicinity of the legation. According to Spanish investigators at least 2 of the 10 attackers have been identified and have links with American secret services.
