A Portuguese branch of the Anonymous hacking collective says it has shut down about 20 Angolan government websites in retaliation for the jailing of 17 youth activists for plotting "rebellion".The youths, including well-known rapper Luaty Beirao, were sentenced on Monday to between two and eight-and-a-half years, in a ruling that Amnesty International said was "an affront to justice". In a statement on its Facebook page late Tuesday, the Anonymous Portugal group listed the government websites it said it had attacked.There was no immediate comment from the government on the alleged cyber-attack.
