CAIRO: The Cairo International Airport website was briefly closed Friday after it was hacked by pro-Muslim Brotherhood hackers Friday on the anniversary of the 2013 dispersal of Rabaa sit-in.
Head of the airport Ahmed Genena told Youm7 that the authorities are investigating the incident to identify the hackers and their location.
The website is now up and running, after the hackers left slogans in Arabic, Turkish and English.
“In revenge for the martyrs who have died by the bullets of the military gang and criminal Sisi since the coup, you will drown in the blood of those you have killed. We will follow you everywhere… the revolution continues and the land does not absorb blood,” the hackers wrote on the website before it was taken down.
The number of people killed in the dispersal of Rabaa al-Adaweya and Nahda sit-ins Aug. 14, 2015 exceeded 600 persons, according to state-owned National Council for Human Rights. Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International reported that more than 1,000 people were killed, while the Brotherhood sets the figure at over 3,000.
