Activists claiming to be the Syrian Electronic Army hacked late Tuesday three Twitter accounts belonging to Spanish football champions Barcelona.
"Dear FC Barcelona management, don't let the Qatari money funds you, it's full of blood and kill [sic]," read the message posted on the Catalan, English and Castilian Spanish Twitter feeds of the club’s twitter accounts.
"Special hi to Real Madrid," a final message which provided a link to the Syrian Electronic Army read.
The messages remained on the feeds for 20 minutes before being taken down, according to Britain’s The Mirror.
Online firms Ebay, Paypal, Fadebook, Microsoft and media groups Reuters, Forbes and CNN have all been targeted by the pro-Assad hackers.
In 2012, Al Arabiya News’ social media accounts were hacked allegedly by the same group.
