Suspected hackers detained in Dominican Republic

The Associated Press is reporting that prosecutors in the Dominican Republic say they have detained six suspected members of the loose-knit Anonymous hacker movement.

Public Prosecutor German Vasquez alleges the six hacked into government websites, including ones for the president and the education ministry. He says the suspects range in age between 17 and 23.

Defense lawyer Carlos Guerrero denies the accusations and says the government has no evidence.
