An Australian airport website was offline after being taken over by pro-Islamic State hackers who published messages supporting the militant group.

Police said hackers appeared to have targeted the web host used by the Hobart International Airport in Tasmania and not the facility itself, and no direct threats were made.

Authorities said identical messages had appeared on websites around the world since late 2014.

Australia is involved in the US-led coalition against IS in Iraq and has increasingly been sounding the alarm over radicalised citizens, with about 90 thought to be fighting with the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria.
