London, July 20 (ANI): Police in the US, Britain and the Netherlands have arrested over 20 people as part of an investigation into major cyber attacks.
Most of the arrests were in the US, where the FBI said 16 people had been held for alleged computer hacking.
FBI said that fourteen of them were suspected of an online attack on PayPal, claimed by hacking group Anonymous, the BBC reports.
The US indictment against 14 of those arrested on suspicion of December's attack on PayPal stated it had been 'retribution' for the site closing a donation account for the whistleblowing website Wikileaks.
The PayPal attack suspects were arrested in Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Washington DC, Florida, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Mexico and Ohio, US officials said in a statement.

"The Metropolitan Police is liaising with the FBI and indeed with our Dutch colleagues," a Scotland Yard spokesman said. (ANI)
