WASHINGTON - Newsweek magazine's Twitter account was the victim of hackers on Tuesday who posted an image of an Islamic militant's kerchief-covered head and the words "Je suis IS," a dual reference to Islamic State and the French magazine Charlie Hebdo.
The account contained a message from the "Cybercaliphate" intended for the United States in retaliation for its actions in the Muslim world.
"While the US and its satellites are killing our brothers in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, we are destroying your national cybersecurity system from inside," it said.
The same group took responsibility for a recent intrusion of the US Central Command Twitter account.
