Braking: ‘Iranian hackers’ take control of US government website and post image of a bloodied Trump

HACKERS claiming to represent Iran have taken control of a U.S. government website - and posted an ominous warning.

A doctored image of President Donald Trump bleeding from the mouth, along with a message boasting of Iran's cyber strength, met users who clicked on the Federal Depository Library Program's website late on Saturday.

A note left by the alleged hackers read: "In the name of god. >>>>> Hacked By Iran Cyber Security Group HackerS ... ;)<<<<<. This is only small part of Iran's cyber ability ! We're always ready."

Despite hackers claiming to be operating on behalf of Iran, it is unknown if whoever accessed the website actually was doing so.

The alleged cyber attack came after Iran pinpointed 35 "key US targets" for revenge after its top general was assassinated - with America expecting retaliation "within weeks".

Hours later, rockets were fired near the US Embassy in Baghdad and at an airbase housing American troops, according to reports.
