Washington Post says website hacked by Syrian group
Washington: The Washington Post said on Thursday its website was hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army, becoming the latest media organisation victimised by the group that backs strongman Bashar al Assad.
A note to readers said the Post website "was hacked on Thursday, with readers on certain stories being redirected to the site of the Syrian Electronic Army."
The Post said it was "working to resolve the issue."
The hacker group has been linked to attacks on the websites or Twitter feeds of numerous media organisations including Agence France-Presse, The Financial Times, the Associated Press and the satirical news site The Onion.
Earlier this week, the hackers hit the Facebook and Twitter accounts of the New York Post.
The group has claimed the news media has been biased in its coverage of the deadly conflict in Syria.
