By the time I learned about this, the fuss was over.
Why the attack? Probably in response to Interpol's issuing the Red Notice prior to the arrest this week of Pirate Bay founder Gottfrid Svartholm in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. He may be extradited back to Sweden to serve his time and pay his fine. (12 months jail plus a $1.1 million dollar fine). It seems that the Swedish government has sent a group of officials to Cambodia where they will discuss procedures for the extradition of Svartholm also known as Anakata. The arrest was at the request of the Swedish government.
