Israeli hackers today took down the Web site for the Central Bank of the United Arab Emirates, while the bank was hosting European Central Bank president Mario Draghi.

"The attack was apparently conducted by a group calling itself 'IDF Team,' which also claimed responsibility for knocking the Arab Bank offline on Thursday," writes TG Daily's Trent Nouveau. "UAE Central Bank officials downplayed the incident, emphasizing that talks with the European delegation remained the top priority of the day."

"'We have been busy here,' Sultan bin Nasser al-Suwaidi, governor of the UAE Central Bank told the Financial Times. 'There are IT technicians who will take care of it."
