Fox News Twitter Account Said Barack Obama is Dead

A hacked Fox News twitter account sent a six bogus messages on its political account (@foxnewspolitics) reporting that President Barack Obama had been assassinated in Iowa.

The series of tweets showed up early Monday morning on the account, which has more than 36,000 followers.

Fox News issued a statement calling the tweets "malicious" and "false," and said the hacking incident is under investigation.

FoxNews.com said that it alerted the U.S. Secret Service, and the company is working with Twitter to address the situation.

The tweets have since been deleted.
