LONDON - British police say they are searching the computer seized from a 19-year-old suspected hacker for links to a cyber attack on Sony.

The Metropolitan Police would not say if the suspect was tied to the Lulz Security hacking collective, which has claimed responsibility for recent high-profile attacks, but did confirm that a computer seized in the operation will be examined for Sony data.

Lulz Security had boasted of successfully hacking Sony in addition to subsequent attacks on the CIA web page. The hackers recently called for "war" on governments that control the Internet.

The teenager was arrested late Monday following a joint operation by Britain's Internet crimes unit and the FBI.
