Hactivists target Nova Scotia case

The death of Nova Scotia teenager Rehteah Parsons has generated a lot of interest, and now attracted the attention of the hacvtivist group Anonymous.

They're threatening to reveal the identities of the young men Parsons says sexually assaulted her at a party, and then circulated photos of the attack over the internet. Parsons was taken off life support this week after attempting suicide.
