SEOUL, South Korea — Hackers apparently broke into at least two of North Korea’s government-run online sites Thursday, as tensions rose on the Korean Peninsula.

The North’s Uriminzokkiri Twitter and Flickr accounts stopped sending out content typical of that posted by the regime in Pyongyang, such as photos of North’s leader Kim Jong-un meeting with military officials.

Instead, a picture posted Thursday on the North’s Flickr site shows Kim’s face with a pig-like snout and a drawing of Mickey Mouse on his chest. Underneath, the text reads: “Threatening world peace with ICBMs and Nuclear weapons/Wasting money while his people starve to death.”

Another posting says “We are Anonymous” in white letters against a black background. Anonymous the amorphous hacker collective born out of the political wing of the 4chan message board. Anonymous has picked many different political (and less political) causes over the years and often adopts the iconography of the 2005 movie adaptation of V for Vendetta.

The North Korean official twitter account has been hacked.

A statement purporting to come from the attackers and widely circulated online said that they had compromised 15,000 user records hosted on Uriminzokkiri.com and other websites. The authenticity of the statement couldn’t be confirmed, but the North’s official website did not open Thursday.

Tweets on the North’s Twitter account said “Hacked” followed by a link to North Korea-related websites. One tweet said “Tango Down” followed by a link to the North’s Flickr page.

North Korea opened its Twitter account in 2010. It has more than 13,000 followers. The North uses the social media to praise its system and leaders and also to repeat commentaries sent out by North’s official Korean Central News Agency.

Tensions have been high in recent days between North and South Korea, and the North’s military warned Thursday that it had been authorized to attack the U.S. North Korea is angry about sanctions against its nuclear program and joint military drills between the U.S. and South Korea.

THE FULL TEXT OF ANONYMOUS’S MESSAGE TO NORTH KOREA

Hello, citizens of the world.

– it’s time to install a free direct democracy in North Korea

– uncensored internet access for all the citizens!

To Kim Jong-un:

So you feel the need to create large nukes and threaten half the world with them?

So you’re into demonstrations of power?, here is ours:

– We are inside your local intranets (Kwangmyong and others)

– We are inside your mailservers

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP) — A shootout between rioting prisoners and security forces at a prison in Sri Lanka’s capital killed at least 27 inmates, while police said Saturday that they arrested five prisoners who had managed to escape and were searching for others.

Another 42 people were wounded in the shootout Friday between inmates and army and police commandos that broke out after the rioting prisoners briefly took control of at least part of the Welikada prison in Colombo. The situation at the prison had returned to normalcy by Saturday morning.

“The prison is now totally under our control,” said prison chief P.W. Kodippili, whose facility was the site of another riot earlier this year.

Dr. Anil Jasinghe, director of the Colombo National Hospital, said the bodies of 16 inmates were at his hospital.

Kodippili said that security forces had found the bodies of 11 other inmates inside the prison premises, and that the total number of deaths stood at 27.

Twenty-three inmates who were injured in the clash were receiving treatment at the hospital, Jasinghe said. Thirteen police officers, four soldiers, a prison guard and a passer-by also were being treated there for injuries.

Police spokesman Prishantha Jayakody said five prisoners who escaped from the prison had been arrested.

Kodippili declined to say how many inmates may have escaped, but said search operations were under way to find others who may have fled.

Jayakody said the fighting began when police commandos went to the prison to conduct a search and were attacked by inmates hurling stones. He declined to provide more information. Officials often conduct raids for narcotics and communication devices.

An Associated Press photographer saw prisoners waving rifles atop the prison’s roof Friday night.

Other prisoners piled into a three-wheeled vehicle and began driving toward a main city road before security forces outside the prison opened fire. The vehicle stopped, and three unmoving bodies could be seen.

Dozens of security officers then entered the prison, and volleys of gunfire rang out. Prisoners could be heard screaming, “Stop shooting!”

Army troops were called in later to help control the situation.

Kodippili said the inmates had broken into the prison’s two armories during the riot and taken weapons stored there. The inmates opened fire at police commandos, who shot back.

He said that security forces had so far recovered 76 weapons taken by the prisoners and that six more weapons were still missing.

A clash between inmates and guards at the same prison last January wounded 28 people. Those prisoners were protesting the authorities’ move to curtail drug smuggling into the facility.

White Teachers Suspended Over Role Model

Picture

 
March 4, 2010 – These teachers worked at the Wadsworth Avenue Elementary school in South Los Angeles, the school now consists mostly of hispanic kids just like most of the United States now . Its said that these teachers made what were unfortunate poor choices of role models. Is that what these accusers would have said in 1994 and 1995! Do they remember that a murder trial turned into a white man Mark Fuhrman said the N word trial, and Mark Fuhrman was compared to Adolf Hitler as well as being called a genocidal “RACIST”. The magic “RACIST” word! How many blacks did Fuhrman murder? Since blacks are not the victims they claim to be there were fears that riots would erupt if Simpson had been convicted. Before and after the riots of 1992, from 1987 to 2001 Rodney King had been arrested 12 times. The 1992 riot was over a police beating of Rodney King by white officers cought on home video. As usual this home video conviently only had the bad whitie part of the video. Also televised was what happens when whitie goes into black neighborhoods. There was no riot over that. Remember how happy blacks were when Simpson was acquitted knowing he was guilty, were they being role models. And how his acquittal was said to be “getting back at the white man” payback! The trial jury consisted of 9 blacks,1 hispanic and 2 whites. I bet OJ Simpson was a role model when he killed two white people as well as a house hold name. The Los Angeles Mexican mayor and the NAACP accused these school teachers of making a mockery of African American History. Who made a mockery of African American History in 1995 throughout the Simpson murder trial. Was mayor Villaraigosa shocked and outraged when the verdict was read. Was he shocked and outraged when his Mexican marchers through rocks and bottles at police officers in 2007 http://www.diggersrealm.com/mt/archives/002216.html  http://www.azcentral.com/community/phoenix/articles/2010/01/16/20100116protest0117.html Students throw rocks and bottles in Riverside http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,189282,00.html  http://www.themonitor.com/articles/responds-35212-border-rocks.html  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dawn-teo/protest-against-americas_b_425970.html  Folks on the other side often throw rocks and bottles over the wall targeting Americans.  http://www.cpt.org/cptnet/2008/01/10/arizonasonora-borderlands-subversive-handshake       Are these people role models to. Do these people teach their kids, when you come from Mexico or any other hispanic country you can do anything in the United States you want.  Since this biracial man became president, blacks seem to think they all now have a free pass to be in control. Just as The Great Breeder seems to think its their people that is the all mighty in the U.S. now.  Photos, the first – OJ Simpson doing a little dance after the trial saying: I Did It, I Did It, IDid It,. The second photo depicts peaceful protesters telling the American people that they are here now, and this is their country. So Americans can leave the country they were born in. When the third photo was taken in 2007, the Mexican H1N1 disease hadn’t yet started killing thousands of people in the U.S. and Mexico. So” why would this peaceful protester be sporting the bandit look.
