AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) _ Dutch police arrested a computer hacker Wednesday who claimed he wrote the Anna Kournikova computer virus that snarled e-mail around the world this week, officials said.

The 20-year-old from the northern province of Friesland turned himself in and was arrested, police spokesman Robert Rambonnet told The Associated Press. He was detained on suspicion of damaging computer programs and property.

His identity was withheld under Dutch privacy laws.
