In an apparent payback operation for the reported attack on the La Prensa website on Wednesday, the Panama chapter of the hacktivist group Anonymous announced on Twitter that it had brought down the website of the Super99 supermarket chain:

We tried, and indeed the website could not be reached.
Super99 is owned by Panama's president Ricardo Martinelli. He started out in the supermarket business with the help of Panama's former dictator Manuel Antonio Noriega.
Anonymous, in other tweets, said that this was not an attack, "it was a warning".
