Online hacking community Anonymous joined the Syrian anti-government protesters Monday, allegedly downing the Syrian Ministry of Defense website, CNN reported. The attack is the latest Internet sabotage carried out by the group against an Arab government since the start of the so-called Arab Spring last January.

The Ministry of Defense website's content was reportedly replaced with still images from amateur anti-regime clips, a Syrian flag carrying the group's logo - a headless man in a suit - and a message of support to anti-government protesters.

By Monday morning the Syrian Ministry of Defense website was offline.
