All while this is happening, Anonymous are jumping into the ring where the hacking collective are said to have started an initiative called "Operation Free Korea" and they're demanding that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un resign and install free democracy in the country.

Anonymous have also demanded that North Korea abandon their nuclear ambitions, and for the NK government to give universal and uncensored Internet access to their citizens. The hacking collective have claimed they've hacked into the North Korean intranet, mail servers and Web servers, threatening to wage war if their demands aren't met. The group has written:

We got all over 15k membership records of Uriminzokkiri.com and many more. First we gonna wipe your data, then we gonna wipe your badass dictatorship 'government.'
