Social media accounts of Pakistan’s Embassy in Algeria were hacked Wednesday afternoon, according to the Foreign Office.

In a tweet, Asim Iftikhar Ahmed, spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts of the Embassy of Pakistan in Algeria have been hacked.

Anything posted from these accounts are fake, he requested, adding that a complaint has been registered and the cybercrime cell is working on retrieving them.

Last year, in December, the Pakistan Embassy in Serbia went rogue and tweeted against what they claimed to be the non-payment of the embassy staff’s salaries. The person using the embassy’s Twitter account tagged Prime Minister Imran Khan and asked “how long do you expect @ImranKhanPTI that we government officials will remain silent and keep working for you without being paid for the past 3 months”.

However, the embassy and the foreign office later said that the Twitter handle was hacked from Karachi and the hackers were behind the rogue tweets.
