Hacktivists identify 1,000 KKK members

The hacktivist group Anonymous said it will identify a thousand members of the Klu Klux Klan, and it comes as the first anniversary of protests in Ferguson, Missouri approaches, Huffington Post reported.

Last November, hackers took control of two KKK Twitter accounts and called their push #OpKKK.

It came after a chapter of the racist group reportedly threatened lethal force against protesters speaking out against the killing of Michael Brown, Huffington Post reported.

Brown, who was unarmed, was killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri last year.

Last week, Operation KKK, the Twitter handle being used by Anonymous, posted that the group took over another KKK account, and compiled the names from information gathered from that account.

CNN recently found there are currently about 3,000 to 5,000 members of the Klan.
