NEW YORK (AP) - Fox News’ political Twitter account appears to have been hacked.

Tweets coming from the FoxNewsPolitics account early Monday have been reporting the death of President Barack Obama. A series of six tweets say that Obama was assassinated in Iowa and the shooter is unknown.

Fox’s political Twitter account has more than 34,000 followers.

Fox News representatives didn’t immediately return a request for comment.
