Woolwich attack: Personal details including mobile phone numbers of 'EDL members' leaked online by hacking group Anonymous
Personal details including mobile phone numbers purporting to belong to members of the English Defence League have been leaked online by individuals claiming to be part of the international hacking group Anonymous.
An audio statement posted on YouTube accused the EDL of using the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby to spread a campaign of hate and bigotry. The group said it was plotting a “systematic and comprehensive decimation” of the group.
A document allegedly including mobile phone numbers of EDL leaders appeared online, as well as what are believed to be the addresses of a range of donors to the far-right party. More are expected in forthcoming days.
A statement from the group read: “Last week, an innocent drummer, Lee Rigby, lost his life at the hands of two vile and demented human beings in the most horrific and heinous manner ever witnessed on the streets of Britain.
”This villainous public display has thrown the United Kingdom into mourning; every community and every congregation extending their deepest condolences.
“You, however, have used this as another excuse to further spread your campaign of hate, bigotry, and misinformation. Under the guise of national pride you have instigated crimes against the innocent and incited the subjugation of Muslims.
”We will not allow your injustices, your lies, and your stupidity, to further radicalise our youth into fearing and despising their fellow man. We will begin the systematic and comprehensive decimation [sic] of your cult. You will fall, we can say this with complete confidence. We are everywhere, you cannot hide, you cannot win.“
Twitter sites also republished leaked details of hundreds of names and addresses linked to the party which were leaked on the web in 2010 after hackers permeated one of the organisation's websites. The leak occurred just hours after four people were charged following disorder during protests by EDL and anti-fascist campaigners on Monday. All four of the arrests took place in London's Leicester Square.
