Hacktivist group Syrian Electronic Army has struck again, targeting the Twitter account of The Onion, a US-based satirical news organisation.  @TheOnion posted an unusual series of parody tweets and images relating to Syria, prompting online users to point out the potential hacking. 

The tweets in question have since been deleted. However, several screenshots were captured and shared.
