Iran’s ‘Cyber Army’ has reportedly hacked the US international broadcasting service, Voice of America, following claims that the site promoted rebelllion within the Islamic state.
According to the news agency FARS News, which is thought to have close ties to Iranian authorities, the Voice of America website was targeted along with 95 affiliated websites with a message demanding that the superpower cease its interference in Arab nations.
The hackers reportedly left following message directed at Hilary Clinton:
“Mrs. Clinton, Do you want to hear the voice of the oppressed nations?”
“The Islamic nations would no more be tricked by the US, and we want you to stop interfering in the Islamic countries.”
The Voice of America is used to promote a positive view of the US in countries across the world, operating in forty-two languages over radio, television and internet mediums.
