From the Wall Street Journal:
Al-Jazeera, the Arabic news channel that angered American viewers this week by broadcasting images of dead and captured U.S. soldiers, now may count itself among the war's victims.

Hackers knocked out al-Jazeera's Arabic and English-language news sites for a third straight day Thursday -- intermittently displaying an American flag to readers of the English site ( -- amid a wider Western backlash against the Qatar-based broadcaster. Its Washington office has received threatening phone calls this week, and its reporters were barred from the New York Stock Exchange on Wall Street and Nasdaq MarketSite in Times Square.

UPDATE: You can also find a picture of the hacked site at the BBC.
