Several Sri Lankan websites including the website of the Ministry of Tourism Development and Christian Religious Affairs have been hit by a cyber-attack.
 
The websites have been hacked by a group identified as Tamil Eelam Cyber Force.
 
The group has hacked the official website of the Ministry of Tourism and that of the Sri Lankan Embassy in Kerala, India. 
 
The group in the websites has published announcements that the Sri Lankan tri forces massacred Tamil nationals in Vellamulliwaikkal during the fourth Eelam war.
 
When we inquired in this regard from the Minister of Tourism Development, John Amarathunga, he stated that measures were taken to rectify the issue immediately once they were made aware of the situation.
 
The Minister further stated that an investigation into the incident will be carried out on Monday.

Meanwhile, it was reported that the official website of the Batticaloa Urban Council also was hacked by the group.
