In Tunisia, Gayday Magazine attacked by homophobic hackers

TUNIS, Tunisia -- Wednesday, homophobic hackers attacked Tunisia’s main LGBT title, Gayday Magazine, taking over its email, Twitter and Facebook accounts.

This comes after several previous attacks which hacked Gmail, Twitter and the main site, renaming account titles to "Garbage Day Magazine."

These attacks take place at the height of an international campaign of which Gayday Magazine is a part, to raise awareness about the massacre of emo and gay people in Iraq.

Fadi, the editor of Gayday Magazine said: "The hackers are Tunisians, that’s all I know for now regarding their identity. They seem really determined to take down the magazine. This is by far the strongest homophobic attack the magazine received. They don’t want to engage in a dialogue, they are just determined to silence us."
