BBC: New York Post and UPI Twitter accounts hacked

16 January 2015 Last updated at 16:59 ET BBC

The Twitter accounts of the New York Post and United Press International (UPI) have been hacked with fake tweets on economic and military news.
In one post, the Pope was quoted on UPI's Twitter feed as saying that "World War III has begun".

Meanwhile, the New York Post's account said that hostilities had broken out between the United States and China.

It is the latest hack of a high-profile social media account, four days after US military command was compromised.

UPI, which is based in Washington, confirmed in a statement that both its Twitter account and news website had been hacked.
