BUENOS AIRES, June 19 (Reuters) - Argentina's army said on
Monday that its website was hacked and images purported to be of
members of the Islamic State militant group were posted on it.
    "This is a threat. ISIS is in Argentina and you will hear
from us soon," said the page, which was seen by Reuters.
Pictures of people dressed in black were posted on the site for
about 20 minutes before the army took it down.
    Argentina's army was unsure who had hacked the website and
was investigating, said spokeswoman Dolores San Martin, who
works in the army's communications department in Buenos Aires.
    The websites for the air force and navy were not affected.
    The Ministry of Defense did not immediately respond to a
request for comment.
