Twitter account of Bahrain’s foreign minister hacked

Published: Updated:

Assailants have hacked the Twitter account of Bahraini Foreign Minister Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed al-Khalifa and posted hostile and insulting videos, the foreign ministry said on Saturday.

"The Account of H.E. Minister of Foreign Affairs has been hacked. Kindly be aware," the foreign ministry said in a message posted on its Twitter account.

The foreign ministry did not accuse any party of carrying out the hacking.

The hackers used the minister's account to retweet postings from another account identified, which appears to be that of anti-monarchy militants.
