Qedward writes: The Ministry of Justice has experienced problems with the availability of its website following a denial-of-service (DDoS) attack by Anonymous, which is demanding freedom for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange who was granted asylum by Ecuador last week.

Other government sites, including the Department for Work and Pensions, the Home Office and the Prime Minister's site, have also been targeted
