LONDON — British police arrested five people Thursday on suspicion of involvement in recent cyber attacks conducted by an Internet hacking group that has backed WikiLeaks.

The five males, aged from 15 to 26, were arrested during an early morning raid at their homes across the UK for their alleged involvement in the attacks.

Anonymous, a loose-knit collection of activists, has claimed responsibility for attacking the websites of companies such as Visa, Mastercard and Paypal, all of whom severed their links with WikiLeaks after it began publishing its massive trove of secret US diplomatic memos.
