Restaurants hit by terrorists

Two unrelated restaurants hundreds of miles apart were victimized last weekend by terrorist groups, according to media reports.

The Shed, an independent restaurant in Ocean Springs, Miss., said its website was hacked by a group professing to be the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, the military group battling to take control of Iraq.

Authorities said the attack might have been the work of a robot, or bot, that randomly sets upon computers. A number of businesses in the area were similarly hacked, according to local media stories.

Meanwhile, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is reportedly investigating the placement of a firebomb, a glass bottle filled with inflammatory liquid, in a KFC in Reno, Nev. The letters “ALF” were written across one window of the restaurant, local media reported.

Authorities did not publicly speculate about what group might have been responsible for the placement.
