Link to video 'The truth will prevail'

(ANSA) - Florence, February 16 - Carabinieri police on Monday were investigating how the website of a high school in the Florentine suburb of Scandicci was hacked by a group calling itself the Moroccan Islamic Union Mail.
    The incident is being probed to "understand where the violation comes from", investigators said.
    The website of the school, the Istituto Comprensivo Scandicci Uno, was hacked on Sunday afternoon.
    The hackers took over the web page, posting a video on the "supremacy of the Muslim religion" under the hashtag #the truth will prevail.
    The video, which was also posted to YouTube, "does not include defaming news nor hails terrorism", investigators said. The web page displayed a message saying the hackers did "not want muscle flexing" but just vied "to get our message across".
    Education Undersecretary Gabriele Toccafondi on Monday said authorities were trying "to understand the nature of the incident".
