The arrest of 16 Anonymous and LulzSec suspects in the US on Tuesday was accompanied by the arrest of a teenager in the UK and the cuffing of four further suspects in the Netherlands.

FBI agents arrested 14 people across the US suspected of attacking PayPal's website as part of an Anonymous-related operation in support of WikiLeaks. A further two suspects were arrested and questioned over attacks – credited to LulzSec – on the website of InfraGard, an FBI-affiliated information security outfit, and AT&T, as explained in more details in our earlier story here.

In addition, the UK's Police Central eCrime Unit arrested a 16-year-old from South London on suspicion of breaching the Computer Misuse Act. The youngster is being questioned over his suspected involvement in hacks carried out by Anonymous. Police seized computer equipment during a raid on the teenager's house on Monday.

The international police round-up also extended to the Netherlands, with the arrest of a further four suspects in the case.

The latest batch of arrests are the latest in a series of arrests of suspected Anonymous and LulzSec members. These have previously involved authorities in Spain, Turkey and Italy. ®
