The websites of three major U.S. news outlets have been hacked by supporters of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The Washington Post newspaper, CNN and Time magazine Thursday said hackers were redirecting certain news links to the website of the Syrian Electronic Army, a group that supports the Syrian president's regime. The media outlets say they have taken defensive measures and removed the offending module that caused their pages to be redirected.
