An online message purportedly from members of the hacking protest group Anonymous has threatened the "comprehensive decimation" of the English Defence League:
The publication of the contact details of alleged EDL members online by a hacking protest group, comes after a video vowing to bring the organisation down was posted online.
Titled 'A Message from Anonymous UK to the English Defence League', it accuses the group of using the death of Drummer Lee Rigby as an "another excuse to further spread your campaign of hate, bigotry, and misinformation".
Around 1,000 protesters joined an EDL march to Downing Street on Monday, chanting "Muslim killers off our streets" and "There's only one Lee Rigby" in tribute to the soldier killed in Woolwich last week.
People claiming to be part of the hacking protest group Anonymous have apparently published contact details of English Defence League members online.
The names and addresses of more than 200 people from across the country are said to be on the list, the BBC reports.
The mobile numbers of senior EDL members are also thought to have been included on the list.
