Azerbaijani TV Attacked By Iranian Hacker

  • RFE/RL's Azerbaijani Service

Azerbaijani state television's website has been vandalized in a hacking attack, apparently by hackers based in neighboring Iran.

Azerbaijan's Communications Ministry announced on February 23 that along with AzTV's website, the homepage of state airline AZAL was also hit by cyberattackers.

Azerbaijani officials say the attacks originated from Iran.

The attacks have taken place amid tensions between the Azerbaijani and Iranian governments.

The Islamic regime in Tehran has reportedly been displeased by friendlier links between Azerbaijan and Israel in recent months.

Azerbaijan has accused Iran of sponsoring Islamic radicals on its territory.
