NORTH Korea’s embassy in Spain has been attacked and staff ‘tied up and gagged’, according to the Spanish Interior Ministry.

A group of unknown assailants entered the embassy last Friday and tied up staff, before making off with a number of computers.

According to El Confidencial, a Korean woman managed to raise the alarm after she freed herself and run into the street.

Through an interpreter, the women told police “a group of men had entered the embassy and gagged the staff.”

No official police complaint has been filed  and when officers tried to enter the embassy, a person reportedly opened the door to tell them nothing had happened.

The North Korean ambassador to Spain was expelled in 2017 amid soaring nuclear tensions.
