Anonymous launched a global online protest to mark the 100th day of the hunger strike by Guantanamo Bay prisoners

The Guantanamo Bay detention camp is losing all access to wireless internet and social networks due to hacking threats

U.S. military officials have blocked access to wireless internet and social networks like Facebook and Twitter at Guantanamo Bay because it fears that international hacking group Anonymous will launch an attack to disrupt services at the naval base.

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. 

The hunger strike has captured a lot of attention on networks like Twitter and Facebook. Many, including human rights activist groups, are calling for the closure of Guantanamo Bay.

The Guantanamo Bay detention camp is a prison and interrogation facility placed within the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba. 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.
