Taleban site hacked and defaced

Osama Bin Laden not held in high esteem

The site www.taleban.com, registered to the Afghan Taleban Mission to the UN in New York, has been hacked and defaced.

Reading "Taleban was again fucked by RyDen", the site now features just a picture of terrorist Osama Bin Laden - widely blamed for masterminding the attacks yesterday - alongside a few words, including "Bastard still wanted, Dead or Alive. $5.000.000 for info".

This is a reference to the FBI's reward of $5 million to anyone with information that leads to the capture of Bin Laden - currently thought to be hiding in Afghanistan, home of the Taleban regime.

The Taleban have condemned the attacks and denied any involvement. However, following George W Bush's promise last night that the US "will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbour them", the regime is sure to be concerned due to its repeated refusal to hand over Bin Laden to American authorities.

And news just in: the UN has pulled 80 staff out of Afghanistan, leading to fears that Bush will send in a retaliatory strike of missiles in the near future.
