Submission + - Turkish websites attacked by Anonymous before vote (reuters.com)

fysdt writes: "Official Turkish websites were attacked by Internet vigilante group Anonymous on Thursday as part of a protest against what it says is government Internet censorship.

With an election three days away, access to Turkey's telecoms authority website, identified as a main target in the protest against a planned new Internet filtering system, was blocked as planned at 6 p.m. (1500 GMT).

While authorities worked to limit the disruption, other sites were also blocked including those related to social security, meteorology and several telecoms-related sites."
