Turkish-Armenian newspaper website hacked
15 Feb 2010

Hackers took control of the website of Agos, a leading Turkish-Armenian newspaper  last Friday, the cyber-attackers uploaded images of the alleged murderer of the newspaper’s former editor-in-chief, and winner of the Index on Censorship’s 2008 journalism award, Hrant Dink. The hackers claimed  there would be more of the same if the newspaper did not fix its reporting to “the way we see fit”. Agos has regularly published articles about the Armenian genocide.
