Hackers crash PM's website

10 December 2015, 09:50

Tokyo — A hacking group says it has crashed Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's official website to protest Japan's plans to hunt whales.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told reporters that one of Abe's websites has been inaccessible since early Thursday and police are investigating.

Suga acknowledged that the Anonymous hacker group has posted a twitter message claiming responsibility but adds authorities have not singled out the group as a prime suspect.

One of the group's twitter message posted nine hours ago criticizes Japan over its whaling plans, and warned that Abe's website would be brought down.

Japan, despite protests from anti-whaling groups, resumed its annual Antarctic whale hunt, which it says is done for research, last week under a revised plan after the International Court of Justice found its earlier program unscientific.
