The UN was today reviewing the security procedures on its website after a group of hackers posted anti-Israeli messages on the personal page of the Secretary-General.

A page usually given over the speeches of Ban Ki Moon was yesterday displaying messages which read: "Hey Ysrail and Usa dont [sic] kill children and other people Peace for ever No war."

The messages, apparently written by a group of hackers who go by the name CyberProtest, were posted in the early hours of Sunday, but had been removed by 9:15am East Coast time, a UN spokesman said.

"We are very concerned that this happened and we are investigating,” the spokesman said. "We will make security changes to prevent this from happening again."
