Isis in ra­dio hi­jack

Pretoria News Weekend - - WORLD -

STOCK­HOLM: A Swedish ra­dio sta­tion said a pi­rate broad­caster briefly broke into its Fri­day morn­ing show and broad­cast an English-lan­guage pop song urg­ing Western­ers to join the Is­lamic State group.

The song, ti­tled For the Sake of Al­lah, was re­port­edly played for about 30 min­utes on the FM and in­ter­net-based ra­dio sta­tion that is part of a pri­vate ra­dio net­work air­ing in 24 cities across the coun­try.

Mix Me­gapol said the in­ci­dent would be re­ported. – AP
