The FBI has arrested six suspected British hackers accused of masterminding a global network of online fraudsters trading in stolen bank and credit card information.

They were among 24 suspects snared yesterday following a painstaking two-year undercover sting spanning four continents, described as the biggest of its kind against financial cyber-crooks.

'Operation Card Shop' targeted 'sophisticated, highly organised' criminals, involved in selling stolen identities, credit cards, fake documents and sophisticated hacking software, the FBI said.
