COTABATO CITY, Philippines (Mindanao Examiner / Nov. 14, 2008) – The 
Moro Islamic Liberation Front has restored its website late Friday after 
it was defaced by hackers.

Mohagher Iqbal, a senior MILF leader, earlier said their website, whose 
URL http://www.luwaran.com , was hacked by a still unidentified group. 
"Our website was hacked by the enemy," he said without further 

The website was off line since Friday and its mirror site 
http://www.luwaran.net has been redirected Saturday to a forum on this 
URL http://forums.luwaran.net.

Television giant GMA 7 reported that the MILF website had several photos 
of pigs, animals considered unclean by Muslims.

Links to news articles in the MILF website also led to defaced pages 
featuring pigs. "I love pigs," "i love pigs :D," "Prite bac Prite" and 
"digdigdig," the headlines read.

Those behind the defacing did not leave signs of their identity, 
GMANews.TV reported.

It also quoted reports by radio network dzBB as saying that the Armed 
Forces of the Philippines (AFP) denied involvement in the hacking of the 
MILF website.
