Washington (AFP) – A group declaring sympathy for the Islamic State jihadist group hacked U.S. Central Command’s Twitter account and YouTube page Monday, posting internal military documents online.

The self-declared Cybercaliphate “is already here, we are in your PCs, in each military base,” the hackers wrote on the seized Twitter feed for CENTCOM, which oversees the U.S.-led air war against the group in Iraq and Syria.
