LONDON (AP) — Hackers claim to have intercepted and leaked a sensitive conference call between cybercrime investigators at the FBI and Scotland Yard.

Anonymous has released a roughly 15-minute-long recording of what appears to be a Jan. 17 conference call devoted to tracking and prosecuting members of the loose-knit hacking group.

The recording's authenticity could not immediately be verified and it appears to have been edited to bleep out the names of some of the suspects being discussed.

It's not clear how the hackers claim to have intercepted the call but they also published an email purportedly sent by an FBI agent which gave details and a password for accessing the call.

Scotland Yard said Friday that it was still preparing a statement.
