A list apparently showing the contact details of English Defence League members has been published online. It has been posted by people claiming to be part of a computer hacking network known as Anonymous.
Names and addresses of more than 200 people from all over the country are on the list.
The post from a group calling itself Anonymous UK also includes the mobile telephone numbers of people it claims to be senior members of the EDL. It said the EDL “should have expected this” and warned it to “expect more”. The publication followed an audio message, recorded with a computerised voice and published on YouTube, from Anonymous UK to the EDL that accused the far-right group of taking “advantage of moments of fear and terror to spread hatred and animosity”.
