The website of Spain’s national police force has been briefly knocked offline by hacker collective Anonymous.

The attack on the site was carried out in retaliation for the arrest of three Spanish men the police claimed were ‘core’ members of the group.

The hackers managed to keep http://www.policia.es offline for about an hour from 2130 GMT on 12 June.

However, a statement was posted on a website linked to Anonymous, claimed responsibility for the hack, which it called #OpPolicia.
