Syrian group hacks Post website

NEW YORK – The Washington Post said Thursday that its website was hacked. A group that supports Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime claimed responsibility.

Washington Post Managing Editor Emilio Garcia-Ruiz said in a statement that for about 30 minutes Thursday morning, readers of some Washington Post stories were redirected to the website of the Syrian Electronic Army.

The SEA has taken credit for a string of Web attacks on media targets that it sees as sympathetic to Syria’s rebels. Among the targets the group claims to have hacked are Twitter feeds of the Associated Press, Al-Jazeera English and the BBC.
