Prosecutors Say North Korea Robbed NY Fed of Millions
This won’t calm international tensions. U.S. prosecutors are reportedly putting together a case that the $81 million stolen from Bangladesh’s account at the New York Federal Reserve last year was taken by North Korea. Chinese middlemen allegedly involved in the theft would be the targets of the upcoming investigation, but North Korea would likely be implicated. Security experts say the heist is linked to the 2014 Sony hack, which is also thought to have been directed by Pyongyang, though no public charges have been filed in that case.
