Man arrested for alleged attacks on French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen’s website

A man, suspected of having regularly attacked the campaign website of French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen, has been arrested by French cyber crime police.

Le Pen's campaign said in a statement on Thursday that they have identified several of these hackers and have sent all the relevant data to the police in the context of a complaint that indicated that the individual could be close to extreme left-wing circles. French prosecutors confirmed that a young man had been arrested this week and that he had admitted the facts while in custody.
