The Associated Press has said its Twitter account has been hacked, after the posting of a bogus post about explosions at the White House.
The news agency's account was suspended and it has advised all tweets should be ignored until further notice.
The false message said: "Breaking: Two Explosions in the White House and Barack Obama is injured."
US markets were spooked by the tweet; the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 150 points as it was retweeted.
