STOCKHOLM – HACKERS forced the Swedish government’s website offline for several hours on Thursday in a cyber attack in support of WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange, a report said.


The Aftonbladet daily said the government’s official website, http: www.regeringen.se/, was offline for a few hours overnight to Thursday, publishing a screen shot which showed the server could not be reached. The site was working normally again later in the day.


Government spokesman Mari Ternbo told AFP the government did not comment security matters and could not confirm the cyber attack had taken place.

Assange, a 39-year-old Australian, is being detained in London pending a hearing on extradition to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning over rape allegations. — AFP
