A threat of a bombing near the White House lead to the Twitter account of the Associated Press being hacked and suspended.

A group of hackers is claiming they called emergency services and said they would detonate bombs near the White House in Washington, DC, unless President Obama declared war on North Korea.  That information comes from an exclusive TMZ report.

That report was followed by an erroneous tweet from the AP’s twitter account, @AP, that claimed that bombs had been detonated and that President Obama had been injured.  That account was swiftly debunked by the White House.

As a result of the hack, the Associated Press’s Twitter feed was suspended.
