The Washington Post reported on Friday that the United States made the first arrest related to the mysterious raid of North Korea's Embassy in Spain in February. During the raid, masked intruders tied up staff and stole computers before fleeing to the U.S. On Thursday, U.S. authorities arrested Christopher Ahn, a former U.S. Marine. Ahn is a member of Free Joseon, a group dedicated to the overthrow of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his familial dynasty. Free Joseon reportedly claimed responsibility for the embassy raid in March. The State Department said that the United States had nothing to do with the incident, despite initial reports out of Spain that the CIA was involved.
