Nicolas Maduro has come under cyberattack after online hackers declared war on him. 

A group called The Binary Guardians hacked into the websites of several public institutions in Venezuela. 

Organisations like National Electoral Council (CNE), the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ) and the National Assembly came under attack. 

The group posted a message on these websites, saying it would fight for the rights of all Venezuelans in this way. 

It implored people to support the "brave soldiers" on the street.

The group showed their message on Twitter, and claimed to also have attacked other key institutions.
