Official Site of Al-Jazeera TV Hacked

  CAIRO (AP) - The official website of the Al-Jazeera TV satellite channel has been attacked by hackers backing the Syrian regime.
 
     Hackers replaced the home page of Al-Jazeera's Arabic site with a statement that says the cyberattack was a protest against its coverage of the Syria civil war. 
 
     "This is in response to your position against Syria (people and government) and for special support of the militant terrorism," read a statement posted in Arabic Tuesday, underneath a red stamp reading "hack" in English. In the background was a scene from Al-Jazeera's English website.
 
     The Qatar-based channel has extensively covered the 17-month-long Syrian conflict. Al-Jazeera has been an influential factor in covering "Arab Spring" uprisings across the region.
 
     Qatar is a harsh critic of the Syrian regime and a leading backer of the rebels.
