An Israeli cabinet minister's Twitter account was hacked by a pro-Palestinian outfit which posted messages in his name calling Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a "murdering psychopath".

The string of tweets on the page belonging to Vice Prime Minister Silvan Shalom included messages reading: "FREE PALESTINE! END THE OCCUPATION! STOP THE MURDER OF PALESTINIANS NOW!"

Another said: "Benjamin Netanyahu is a Zionist murdering psychopath" while others called for a worldwide boycott of Israeli products. The page was down for several hours, but has since been reinstated and the tweets in question deleted.
