A number of CNN's social media accounts and blogs were hacked Thursday by a group styling itself as the Syrian Electronic Army.

The cable news network said its main Facebook account, Twitter feeds, and some blogs were targeted and content posted on some of them. The posts, including unauthorized tweets, were deleted in minutes and the accounts have since been secured, it said.
