In an embarrassment to the Egyptian regime, members of an anti-government movement hacked the Facebook site of the ruling party, designed to promote Jamal Mubarak, the son of President Husni Mubarak and posted on it a notice announcing their electronic conference.

The '6 of April' youth movement hacked the "Sharek" site on Facebook created by the National (Democratic) Party to promote Jamal Mubarak, who is chairman of the Policies' Committee at the party.

The movement published an ad for their second electronic conference on the site under the slogan 'We know our priorities'.

On the pages of the site, the movement's coordinator, Ahmad Mahir, declared that through the conference the movement is seeking to reveal lies of the national party, its failure to achieve stability for the homeland and fulfil the will of the people.

The comments that were posted by visitors on the site expressed surprise and bewilderment that the National Party had allowed the '6 of April' youth movement to advertise their conference on the site.

The advertisement remained on the site for 24 hours, prompting comments critical to the ruling party.

Jamal Mubarak is widely believed to be the current regime's choice to succeed the reigning Egyptian President Husni Mubarak.
