Phone hacking isn’t just for sleazy London tabloids. The Taliban has fallen victim, Gizmodo reported.

The phone of Tabliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid sent out the following today:

Leadership council of IEA (Islamic emirate of Afghanistan) announces that Ameer-ul-Mumineen (Mullah Omar) has passed away. May mighty God bless him.

Mullah Omar is considered the spiritual leader of the Taliban. Mujahid later retracted this statement.

We strongly reject this claim. We are not aware of such news. Americans have hacked our cellphones with advanced technology and sent the message to the media.
