LONDON: British judge has banned publication of stolen photographs of Pippa Middleton after allegations that 3,000 personal images were taken in a hacking attack on her iCloud account.

Middleton, sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, went to court against the "person or persons unknown" responsible.

The Sun newspaper said Saturday it was contacted by a purported hacker seeking at least 50,000 pounds ($65,000) for photos that included images of sister Kate with her children, Princess Charlotte and Prince George, and naked images of Middleton's fiancé, James Matthews.

Police arrested a 35-year-old man Saturday on suspicion of offenses under the Computer Misuse Act. He was later released on bail pending further inquiries.

Middleton's lawyer, Adam Wolanski, said Wednesday that the alleged theft had caused Middleton "considerable distress."
