Several Iranian government websites down; Anonymous claims responsibility (

This article was originally published by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and is reprinted with permission. Several Iranian government and state-owned websites have been taken down by Anonymous, the international activist hacker group says, in a move of support for nationwide protests that followed the death of a 22-year-old woman following her arrest by the morality police.

The website of the Iranian presidency, the government-affiliated Fars news agency, and the forensic medical research center of Iran are among the hacked websites that are currently unavailable.

On September 20, a Twitter account purported to belong to the Anonymous group posted a video message that vowed support for the protesters and for women’s rights. “We are here and we are with you! #OpIran Engaged. Expect Us!” the message read.
