They're believed to have pulled off a daring raid only days before the brutal dictator met with President Trump in Vietnam. Brian Todd has been looking into this forest, Brian what have you found out? We'll forgetting new information from sources tonight on that rate on North Korea's embassy in Madrid. And on this mysterious group of dissidents, they're very secretive. They wanna bring down Kim Jong Hoon. And they've just pulled off a brazen operation that is sure to have angered the dictator. It was a raid. Stunning in its awed acidy an operation launched against one of Kim Jong wounds. Most important foreign embassies all done in broad daylight. According to Spanish media reports a group of assailants infiltrated North Korea's embassy in Madrid late last month. The perpetrators reportedly wore masks restrained embassy, staff members, stole several items including computers, then got away in luxury vehicles to barge into an embassy and to overpower the the people there, and then hold them hostage and some reporting that they beat them. They put hoods over their head of it's incredibly brazen. A source familiar with the incident tells CNN a mysterious North Korean dissident group called chili civil defence is believed to be behind the attack at this is the only group we've known to be militant action-oriented clearly against the Keene regime and clearly keen on bringing. Down the Kim regime by any means available. The Washington Post was first to report the involvement of chill Lima civil defense in the embassy rate in Madrid in two thousand seventeen that group posted this video. My name's Kim hansell. From North Korea pot of the Kim family. My father has been killed few days ago. This is the son of Kim Jong nam Kim Jong UN's half. Brother who was killed in a VX nerve gas attack at the Kuala Lumpur airport, a hit which South Korean and Malaysian officials accused Kim Jong Hoon of ordering, but which Kim's regime denied when it first posted the video chilly missile defense said Kim Jong nam son and his family were transmitting from a secret location and feared for their lives. We're very grateful to. We hope. This gets better senior this organization somehow spirited out of Macau. They've been harboring him or protecting him back in Madrid Spanish authorities confirmed to CNN an investigation is underway. But they're not giving any other information. The rate took place on February twenty-second just days before President Trump's second summit with Kim Jong own in Hanoi. Experts say given that it's doubtful. The US would have risked being involved tonight. US intelligence is not commenting on what happened in Spain. Or on this shadowy group still analysts say if chill Lima civil defense was behind the raid. And if they did steal computers what they took could be valuable to US intelligence. The North Korean embassy in Madrid has been identified by experts as a hub of illicit activity running contraband running arm selling arms to hot conflict areas all over the world and also procuring luxury goods aim to keep Kim Jong UN's elites content and happy. Another reason why western intelligence might benefit from information on those computers taken in that raid, a top North Korean official name Kim Hak shoal Kim Jong UN's point man in nuclear negotiations with the United States was until recently posted to that. Same. North Korean embassy in Madrid? Now, the Chilean civil defense group has just posted a statement on its website. Neither confirming nor denying any involvement in that rate on the North Korean embassy in Madrid the group asks the media and others to keep the identities of its members secret if anyone learns those names analysts say there is no doubt Kim Jong UN's regime has its operatives tracking members of this group all over the world likely trying to kill them.

"CNN. Now that Kim Jong UN has wrapped up his visit the China. We're hearing new concern about the fate of a one time top diplomat of vanished and may have fled the North Korean dictator's brutal regime N's Brian Todd has been working as sources for us. Brian. What are they telling you wolf, they're saying tonight that this man in probably his wife have likely gone underground probably still working out where he might get asylum. If he's in fact, defected, what's surprising tonight? Is that former North Korean defectors are saying the South Koreans who have always been receptive to defectors are now not stepping up to the plate. He's one of Kim Jong UN's top diplomats anywhere in the world. And he's been missing without a trace for two months after disappearing from his post at North Korea's embassy in Rome, South Korean media reports say he's defected tonight prominent North Korean defectors say they're worried about the safety of Joe song Gill and his wife and they're pleading with the South Korean government to protect him. What do you know? So. We urge the South Korean government to put in the effort for Joe song Gill that he can make the journey safely to South Korea. If his family wants to but tell young hope a top North Korean diplomat in London who defected three years ago says he does not believe the South Korean government under president moon. Jae in is doing enough to embrace the missing diplomat, quote, neither the South Korean government or its citizens expressed their intention to rescue Joe and his family, I'm saddened by the current situation. This comes just a few days after Tae-Young hope wrote an open letter to the missing diplomat begging him to come to South Korea. What are president moon Jae in and his government doing to make South Korea less hospitable for North Korean defectors? Visit suppression of their activities they are blocking the balloon launches efforts that the North Koreans are making to reach out and get information to North Korea. Second thing is they've cut off funding all the defector led NGOs are advocating for human rights in North Korea. They've stopped all those active. Me they cut off all their funding. In addition, moon Jae, never talks about human rights in North Korea. Some analysts say the South Korean president is so eager to make peace with Kim Jong wound that he doesn't want to anger the North Korean dictator over high profile defectors. He would like to see significant improvement in north-south relations. And the reality is a defector special. High ranking one is a black. I it's very awkward thing for the North Koreans to have to handle. There's no significant evidence that the South Koreans have cut back on security for North Korean defectors. But a key question tonight, if this missing diplomat, Joe song Gill doesn't surface in Seoul. Where could he turn up? I suspect he may end up being a European country in a western European country perhaps in the United States. He will assume a new identity he will be on the protection from indefinite period of time. We have pressed officials at the State Department on whether the US is going to offer asylum to this missing North Korean diplomat. They have not responded we have. Also been pressing South Korean government officials in Seoul. And at their embassy here in Washington to respond to the criticism that they are making life more difficult for North Korean defectors. They have not responded to that wolf or Brian good reporting. Thanks very much coming up. More.

You see what's just been put out on social media where thousands of people are rushing the border having a drone fly overhead. And I think nobody knows much more about technology, this type of technology, certainly than I do having drones and various other former of sensors they're all fine. But they're not gonna stop the problems that this country has that's president.

It's the first time he's appeared in the briefing room since he became president. He did not answer any questions today.
