A US ISP has shut down a terrorist website installed on its servers, believing it to be owned by a top-ranking Al-Qaeda member.
CI Host says its abuse team became suspicious of the site, www.alneda.com ,and had some of its Arabic content translated.
The site looked like a news site, was written in Arabic and carried maps and news about the Middle East.
But according to a CI Host spokesman, the site was owned by a high-ranking Al-Qaeda official, Alijah Neda.
The site discredited American military gains, overstated the number of casualties between US and allied troops and ended with urgings to followers to "call on God to destroy America sooner, rather than later".
Apparently the site had been applying to different ISPs for hosting throughout the world for more than six months.
