Turkish hackers recently hacked the Web site of soccer team FC Spartak Moscow after the Russian team's fans burned Turkish flags and pictures of Atatürk during a Champions League playoff match against Turkish team Fenerbahce on August 21. A portrait of Atatürk next to a Turkish flag was also posted on the website.

The group replaced the website's original content with a statement that called on the team to "immediately apologize." "You will immediately apologize to the Turkish Republic and the Turkish people. No crime goes without punishment, and FIFA may forgive you, but we won't,"

The Spartak site was running again by Thursday afternoon after the club used its Twitter account to blame the incident on 'Turkish hackers.

Spartak Moscow fans burned flags and posters of modern Turkey's founding father, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, during their team’s 2-1 victory over the Istanbul giants in the first leg of their Champions League playoff.
