said North Korea said on Sunday it would seek an investigation into a raid on its Spanish embassy last month, called a "serious terrorist attack" and extortion which is contrary to international law.
The incident occurred before the second summit of President Donald Trump with leader Kim Jong Un on February 2 in Hanoi. 27-28. A mysterious group calling for the overthrow of the North Korean regime has taken responsibility.
The group claimed to have handed the FBI stolen data to the FBI, and a law enforcement agency familiar with the matter confirmed to NBC News that the office had confirmed the office had received the information.
The North's official media quoted a Foreign Ministry spokesman as saying that illegal intrusion into a diplomatic mission and its occupation, as well as a blackmail act, are a gross violation of state sovereignty and a grave violation of international law, "and this Kind of act should never be tolerated.

Also known as the Cheollima Civil Defense, the group presents itself as a movement that frees North Korea from an "immoral and illegitimate regime."

After revoking a secrecy regulation, a Spanish investigating judge revealed in a court document on Tuesday the identity of seven of the alleged ten intruders.
It remained unclear whether the Spanish government had identified the suspects through their own investigations or whether US authorities had passed on the names of the alleged intruders.
The group claimed that the US had betrayed their trust after members contacted the FBI.
"The organization gave the FBI certain information of tremendous potential value with the United States in mutual secrecy," the group said on its website. "This information was given voluntarily and at their request not our own." These conditions appear to have been broken. "
