Tech-savvy militants from al Qaeda and other groups have modified video war games so that US troops play the role of bad guys in running gunfights against heavily armed Islamic radical heroes, US Defence Department official and contractors told the US Congress.But do they make Lara Croft wear a burka?
One of the latest video games modified by militants is the popular Battlefield 2 from leading video game publisher Electronic Arts.
Electronic Arts spokesman Jeff Brown said enthusiasts often wrote software modifications, known as "mods," to video games.
"Millions of people create mods on games around the world," he said. "We have absolutely no control over them. It's like drawing a moustache on a picture."
