AFP photo Twitter account hacked
Tuesday - 2/26/2013, 8:20pm EST
PARIS (AP) -- French news agency Agence France-Presse says one of its photo accounts on Twitter has been hacked and is now suspended.
Pierre Celerier, deputy global news editor for AFP, said the source of the hacking Tuesday is unclear. He said the non-AFP images posted on the account by the hackers appear to be from Syria.
He said the photos posted are not AFP images, and they appear to show images of Iraqi journalists killed in Syria and the site of a car bombing.
He said the account was hacked for about an hour before a Twitter official took control of it. The account has been temporarily suspended.
The account is usually used to post AFP photos from around the world.
