Afghan Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah twitter account hacked

KABUL, July  31, (APP/AFP) - The official Twitter account

of Afghan Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah has been hacked, and

a group apparently sympathetic to minority Shiite Hazara protesters

has claimed responsibility.

"I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.

#enlightenment #enlightenmentmovement," a group identifying itself

as Ghost Squad Hackers tweeted from the account late Saturday.

The hashtags refer to the newly-founded Enlightenment Movement

led by Hazaras, who were targeted by suicide bombers loyal to the

Islamic State group during a huge protest in Kabul on July 23.
