    (ANSAmed) - NEW YORK, OCTOBER 28 - Internet pirates from the pro-Assad Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) on Monday said they hacked US President Barack Obama's Twitter account. A tweet with a link to a Washington Post article was in fact briefly rerouted to a You Tube video on ''terrorism in Syria'', CNBC reported.

    The @BarackObama account is now back to normal. The SEA has claimed responsibility for hacking various US websites including that of the New York Times, the Associated Press and the Washington Post.

    In September, it claimed it hacked into the US Marines website. (ANSAmed).
