Was Egypt’s Ministry of Interior Affairs’ Facebook page hacked (again)?

Aug 16, 2013 at 11:24 AM ET

The following tweet we uncovered indicates that the Ministry of Interior Affairs (MOI) Facebook page appears to have been hacked as the country endured a second day of unrest this week:


“We emphasize that the blood that was spilled today neutralizes the legitimacy of Sisi and Mohammed Ebrahim. And now their heads are on the line.” 

A separate tweet reads that the MOI was not hacked:


“The MOI claims that their Facebook and Twitter pages were hacked. We emphasize that this was not a hack. This was a post by one of the defecting officers.”

This follows a claim earlier Friday that the MOI was hacked.
