Officials at the American military base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba have shut down Wi-Fi access throughtout the camp and banned the use of any social networks following threats from hacktivist collective Anonymous.

Anonymous announced "Operation Guantanamo," an online campaign to protest the conditions of inmates at the base, two weeks ago. Army spokesperson Lt. Col. Samuel House told the Associated Press the decision was made to avoid any disruptions by Anonymous. None have been reported so far.
