  • FIRST ON CNN: US suspects Russian hackers planted fake news behind Qatar crisis

    From CNN Breaking News@VERT to no-reply@siteservices.cnn.com on Tue Jun 6 15:15:26 2017
    US investigators believe Russian hackers breached Qatar's state news agency[1] and planted a fake news report that contributed to a crisis among the US' closest Gulf allies, according to US officials briefed on the investigation.

    The FBI recently sent a team of investigators to Doha to help the Qatari government investigate the alleged hacking incident, Qatari and US government officials say.

    Intelligence gathered by the US security agencies indicates that Russian hackers were behind the intrusion first reported by the Qatari government two weeks ago, US officials say. Qatar hosts one of the largest US military bases in the region.
