Two Scottish teenagers have been arrested over claims they hacked into the Metropolitan Police's website and posted a series of bizarre messages.
Axar.az reports citing BBC.
The country's largest police force was hit by a cyber attack in July and a series of tweets were sent from its verified account, which has more than 1.2 million followers.
A stream of unusual emails were also sent from the force's press bureau.
The arrested teenagers are aged 18 and 19 and from Lossiemouth and Glasgow.
They have been charged with carrying out the alleged hack by Police Scotland.
President Donald Trump used the incident to attack London Mayor Sadiq Khan.
Quoting a tweet from right-wing commentator Katie Hopkins, which said officers had "lost control of London streets" and "lost control of their Twitter account too", Trump wrote: "With the incompetent Mayor of London, you will never have safe streets."
