Anonymous launched a global online protest to mark the 100th day of the hunger strike by Guantanamo Bay prisoners. The detainees have been protesting their living conditions and indefinite detention at the base.
About 103 of the 166 prisoners are on strike.
The U.S. military said it has been receiving online hacking threats amid the hunger strike, which were allegedly from Anonymous.

It is ran by the U.S. military, and was established in 2002 by the Bush Administration to hold those connected with the Global War on Terror including Afghanistan, Iraq, the Horn of Africa and Southeast Asia.
