US broadcaster Fox News has had its Twitter account hacked, with the hackers tweeting to say that President Obama is dead.

The malicious tweet, which is not true, was live for over two hours after stating 'BREAKING NEWS: @BarackObama assassinated, 2 gunshot wounds have proved too much.'

The sick joke was attributed to 'The Script Kiddies', although it is not sure if this is a group or an individual.

Fox News Politics' Twitter feed started posting bizarre tweets early on the 4th July, and it didn't take long for the posts to start claiming President Obama was dead.
