A suburban Indianapolis school district has taken down its website after it was hacked.

The Brownsburg Community School District west of Indianapolis reported Thursday night the website in its hacked state appeared to have been visible for about 30 minutes before school staff took it down.

WISH-TV in Indianapolis reported (http://bit.ly/QMz055) the website was hacked by someone claiming to represent a group called "All Muslims of the World." It says the district's home page was replaced with Arabic writing saying "This breakthrough in response to the film and graphics depicting the master of the world may Allah bless him and grant him peace."

It wasn't clear whether the message referred to an anti-Muslim film implicated in inflaming mobs that attacked U.S. diplomatic missions in Egypt and Libya.
