Hackers say they have accessed e-mail accounts in Turkish PM's office

ANKARA (Reuters) - Hackers said on Wednesday that they had attacked Turkish government systems and obtained confidential details of staff in Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's office to support days of anti-government protests.

A source in Mr Erdogan's office confirmed that staff e-mail accounts had come under a phishing attack, but said those affected had been cut off from the network.

The activists, calling themselves Anonymous Turkey, said in a statement released via Twitter that they had not released any phone numbers, and would only share e-mail passwords linked to accounts with no classified information.
