“Officials in Turkey have arrested 32 members of clandestine Web group Anonymous for their alleged involvement in distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks on Turkish government Web sites.

Suspects were arrested in a dozen Turkish cities, including Ankara and Istanbul, according to state-run news agency, Anatolia.

Anonymous announced Friday that it had “launched a successful DDoS attack against the Turkish government, taking down several official government Web sites.” That attack was in response to Internet censorship in the country; the government plans to implement a filter on Internet browsing on August 22.”
