Rugby League team website hacked with 'I love you Isis' message

The website of Rugby League team the Keighley Cougars has been hacked and replaced with a page featuring the message: “I love you Isis”.

The West Yorkshire club’s home page currently shows a black screen with the words “Hacked By Team System DZ” at the top.

A message posted on the Keighley Cougar’s twitter feed said: “Apologies, the website has been hacked. The developers are working on it. Will let you know when it’s back up and running.”

The website features text including the words ’i love you isis’ and has a recording of music and singing in the background.

A message “to all the population and the government, especially” claims the “State of Islam” is expanding.

The site also features images of fighter jets which it refers to as “warplanes of making America”, pictures of the wreckage of “Muslim homes” and bloody images of people injured in fighting.
