Members of a Turkish hacker collective recently defaced the Web site for Valerie Boyer, a member of the French parliament, in retaliation for her authoring a bill that criminalizes the public denial of the Armenian Genocide.

"According to The Hacker News, Boyer called the police after she and her family received numerous death threats," writes Softpedia's Eduard Kovacs.

"The attack on Boyer’s site comes after a few days ago the French National Assembly passed a bill that refers to the criminalization of anyone who publicly denies the Armenian Genocide," Kovacs writes. "The proposed law caused a lot of controversy and Turkey even recalled its ambassador from France."
