alleged Anonymous 5 arrested?

A recent report on Computing.com advises that 5 people have been arrested over Service Denial attacks on the sites that pulled support for WikiLeaks (Amazon, MasterCard, Visa and PayPal )

The report advises that a message, allegedly from Anonymous, states that the DDOS attacks were legal and is a form of protest in an Internet age.

I’m sure that this story will continue for some time, and hopefully those who have been arrested have proper legal guidance (EFF anyone?)
