The City of Bellevue's website was hacked Monday by a group that purports to be supportive of the Islamic State terrorist group.

The city's homepage at Bellevue.net was replaced Monday by a message that says "Hacked By Team System Dz" and "I Love Islamic state."

City officials say their web provider is looking into the hack, and the message has been removed. They became aware of the hack Monday afternoon.

Similar messages purporting to be from the same hacking group took over a number of government websites last week in Ohio, New York and Maryland.
