During the attack, Koreika managed to escape from the embassy and the screams warned residents who called the police, the newspaper said. When the cops tried to knock on the door, they were told nothing was happening.
The alleged assault took place days before US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Yun held their second meeting in the Vietnamese capital Hanoi. The Trump and Kim meeting ended suddenly partly because of disagreement on when to abolish UN sanctions in exchange for steps towards Pyongyang's nuclear response. But Trump and his assistants said both sides have left good conditions.
Police refused to disclose details of the embassy's case, as the matter is under investigation and the Spanish Interior Ministry said it did not comment on the active investigations. CNN reached the Spanish Foreign Ministry's comment.
A source from the US government says he believes civilian defense of Chelilya, a grim North Korean dissident group, is behind the attack.
Washington Post was the first to report the participation of the UBB in the secret group, whose goal is to knock down Kim's regime. The group has not responded to CNN's request for comment and has not publicly assumed responsibility for the attack.
It is unclear why Kim Chen Nam was killed, but analysts say that if North Korea is behind the killing, Kim Jong Un may have seen his brother and his family as a possible threat to his leadership. "Hoolimah's civil defense has established trust by acting quickly and attracted Kim Han Saul, Kim's son Chen Nam, within days of the terrible murder of his father," says Sun-Yun Lee, professor at Tafts Fletcher University Law School and diplomacy.
