Swiss cuff Islamic hate message duo

Geneva uni computer jihad

Swiss police last week arrested two African men who allegedly used the University of Geneva's computer system to disseminate Islamic fundamentalist hate messages and justifications for terrorist attacks, AFP reports.

The two - a 27-year-old Moroccan and a 41-year-old Algerian, both staying illegally in Switzerland - were fingered by German-language newspaper Weltwoche which reported the activity to the uni's authorities. The powers that be alerted the cops, who swooped on the pair.

That the duo were able to access the computer system was apparently due to a "code that a student had negligently left lying around". ®
