CNN social media accounts hacked

ATLANTA, GA - Some of CNN's social media accounts were compromised Thursday.

The affected accounts included CNN's main Facebook account, CNN Politics' Facebook account and the Twitter page for CNN.

The posts were deleted within minutes and the accounts have since been secured.

Some of the posts claimed that the Syrian Electronic Army, a group of pro-Syrian regime hackers that has aggressively targeted major news organizations and activists, was responsible.

"Syrian Electronic Army Was Here...Stop lying... All your reports are fake!" one of the posts on CNN's Twitter account said.
