Ankara: Turkey’s state-run news agency says police have detained 32 suspected computer hackers, allegedly linked to an international activist group that targeted a government website to protest Turkey’s plans to introduce Internet filters.
The Anatolia news agency said on Sunday the suspects were nabbed in raids in a dozen cities for suspected ties to the group “Anonymous”.
The group this week targeted websites of the country’s telecommunications watchdog, the Prime Minister’s office and Parliament. The telecommunications watchdog said it was prepared for the group and disruption was minimal.
The suspects face questioning and possible charges.
On Friday, Spain arrested three alleged “Anonymous” members suspected of attacking worldwide corporate and government websites.
