MADRID — A guard helped out in the filming of a gang breaking into the Spanish parliament to shoot a spoof video which has become an Internet sensation.
Police said on Monday a guard admitted to have helped four campaigners who called themselves the Four Cats.
They are seen on the video supposedly scaling the walls of the parliament, walking into the empty chamber and placing a note on Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero's seat calling on him to fight world hunger.
An internal investigation was launched after the video appeared on YouTube.com on Saturday and has been an Internet hit since.
All four 'Cats' were given accreditation to get into the building by the guard who told authorities they were relatives.
They have all been identified.
The guard may now face charges and possibly a prison sentence over the affair, said a parliamentary spokesman.
