- +

The Culture Ministry's Thai website has been hacked by a group demanding the ministry return the banned political soap opera "Nua Mek 2" to the public. 

The hackers, who called themselves "The Bad Piggies Team", posted a "Nua Mek 2" banner and two messages: "Return Nua Mek 2 to Us" and "HACKED by THE BAD PIGGIES TEAM" showing intermittently with a cartoon avatar of a green pig head.

They were posted on Wednesday morning. The website was shut down shortly afterwards.
