The Website publicizing a South Shropshire ghost walk was sabotaged by anti-Iraq war protesters. The Journal can reveal that the organizer's of the Ludlow ghost walks were shocked to see photos of mutilated bodies of children posted on their web site. Leon Bracelin, from the Ludlow Ghost Walks said the site had to be closed down and then completely rebuilt. He said that the site had either been targeted because it was popular, receiving 68,000 hits in two months, and the hackers wanted maximum publicity, or because someone didn't agree with its content. The Website belonging to the Church of England in south Shropshire has been hijacked by an extreme Arab group, and littered with images of dead and injured children.

I don't remember seeing any pictures but their you go, you cant beat the press !
