Hackers act to wipe out Norway manifesto

Hackers thumb Hackers act to wipe out Norway manifestoA German hacker group has called for online users to circulate altered versions of the 1500-page manifesto by Norwegian terrorist suspect Anders Behring Breivik, until the original document is drowned out by copies.

‘Ensure that Anders becomes a joke, so nobody takes him seriously any more,’ declared the hacker group Anonymous on Tuesday.

In the 1500-page manifesto, Breivik laid out the racist and anti-Islamist rhetoric that he used to justify last week’s deadly twin attacks on Oslo and a youth camp, in which 76 people died.

Earlier, a senior German police officer said they were investigating claims that Breivik sent copies of the manifesto to extremists in Germany.

An anti-rightwing organisation reported that Breivik sent the document to German neo-Nazis in cities including Dortmund.

‘We are of course investigating this,’ said the chief criminal police officer in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Wolfgang Gatzke. They had maintained a close eye on right-wing extremists since the attacks, he added.

‘No great cheer has erupted in that scene,’ Gatzke said, adding that the overriding response was that it was ‘not in order’ to target young people in terrorist attacks.

Berlin officials previously said Breivik had no links to Germany.

Breivik has confessed to having carried out Friday’s bombing in Oslo and the shootings at Labour Party youth camp on Utoya Island.
