Peter Hain baffled by Anonymous website hacking

Former Wales and Northern Ireland Secretary Peter Hain says he is "angry" that his website has been targeted by computer hacking network Anonymous.

The group has said it is attacking government websites in retaliation for the UK's handling of the case of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

But the Neath MP said the move was a form of intimidation.

He said he did not know why his website had been singled out he had actually supported Mr Assange, who has been granted asylum by Ecuador in a bid to avoid extradition to Sweden, where faces questioning over allegations of sexual assault - which he denies.
