Albuquerque, N.M. • Hundreds of protesters marched past riot police in downtown Albuquerque on Sunday, days after a YouTube video emerged threatening retaliation for a recent deadly police shooting.
The video, which bore the logo of the computer hacking collective Anonymous, warned of a cyberattack on city websites and called for the protest march.
Albuquerque police said their site had been breached early Sunday afternoon and remained down hours later.
Investigators had not uncovered the source of the hack, police spokesman Simon Drobik said.
"We can confirm that the website disruption is due to a cyberattack," he said. The site was not "connected to any critical services" and IT personnel are working on the problem, Drobik said.
