The Turkish Ministry of Finance has said their official website was hacked late last night by members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) for "purposes of dirty propaganda."
The ministry deactivated the website soon after, assuring citizens that it would be back online as soon as possible.
Finance Minister Mehmet Şimşek further said an investigation has been launched to find those responsible.
The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States and the European Union.
