hackers attack Israeli party site

One of Israel's main political parties has shut down its website following an attack by Palestinian hackers, according to reports.

Attackers on the official Kadima website posted images of wounded Palestinians and the aftermath of suicide bombings in Israel.

Slogans in both Hebrew and Arabic were also placed on the site, including threats to party leader Tzipi Livni.

The website was back online early Thursday morning.

The Jerusalem Post, quoting an Israel Army Radio report, said the pictures included one of Livni, with the words "We promise you - we're coming".

According to AP news agency, the hacked web page was signed Gaza Hacker Team.

The images were removed shortly after the attack and the site was then shut down. It was brought back online at about 0830 BST.

Kadima, a centrist political party that favours a two-state solution to the Middle East conflict, is the largest party in the Israeli parliament.

It was unable to form a government, and is currently in opposition.
