The teenagers were being held in the West Midlands by officers from the Police Central e-Crime Unit on suspicion of offences under the Malicious Communications Act and the Computer Misuse Act.
Yesterday, an organisation called Team Poison claimed to have carried out a cyber-attack in response to the alleged detention of innocent people on terrorism charges and the recent ruling to deport a number of terror suspects to the United States
The Daily Telegraph also understands that the group was angry at Government plans to introduce so-called snooping laws, allowing the authorities greater access to personal communications.
