SPAIN — Access to the website of Spain's national police force was blocked for over an hour late on Saturday in a reprisal attack by the hackers group Anonymous, the newspaper El Mundo said on its website Sunday.

El Mundo said the group had warned police in a statement that it planned to disable the website at some time Saturday. The website was down for at least an hour from 2130 GMT, the paper said.
