The four arrested are all Croatian citizens, aged between 16 and 25, police said. Police said the arrested were a part of the Anonymous movement.

Law enforcement authorities started monitoring the group after they used a social network to announce their intentions of targeting the websites of the government and Croatia’s Ministry of Interior.

The investigation into this case is ongoing.

This year, Anonymous hackers published at least two video statements threatening Croatian authorities, police said. The first video published January 4, and the second on March 8, shortly after police attacked a group of protesters.

Further details were not immediately available.
