Italian police claim to have arrested three Anonymous hackers following 32 raids, according to V3.co.uk. One of the suspects is a 26-year-old Italian man who used the online alias "Frey" and is believed to be the country's Anonymous leader. Anonymous Italy has denied that its leaders have been apprehended, saying:
Anonymous has no leaders, no structure. All anonymous members operate at the same level.
The group adds:
The Italian Anonymous have not fallen because of this cowardly attempt to dismantle them, and announce consequences for [the] actions taken by the police to demonstrate that Anonymous is present and fights on, like it did in the past and will in the future, for the freedom of the Internet.
