The Twitter account of FoxNews.com’s political news feed, FoxNewspolitics was hacked on Monday 07,2011, the company said, and released several false tweets saying that President Barack Obama had been shot dead.

“Those reports are incorrect, of course, and the president is spending the July 4 holiday with his family,” Foxnews.com said on Monday in statement saying its site had been hacked.

“Hackers sent out several malicious and false tweets that President Obama had been assassinated,” the statement said.

“The hacking is being investigated, and FoxNews.com regrets any distress the false tweets may have created.”

It was the latest incident in a series of high-profile global wave of hackings over the past few weeks.
