ISLAMABAD (AFP) - Hackers attacked the website of police in the Pakistani city of Rawalpindi late on Thursday but no sensitive data has been compromised, an official said.

The website of police in the garrison city, which neighbours the capital Islamabad, was plastered with photographs and videos of Al-Qaeda and Pakistani Taleban leaders and a message saying "Hacked By Anti Mortadin!@".

It was unclear who the hackers were with no group claiming responsibility for the cyber-attack.

"This site was hacked... a victory for the Taleban," said another post.
