The Washington Post's mobile site was reportedly hacked into Thursday by a group claiming allegiance to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
The Post says visitors of its mobile site Thursday afternoon were redirected to the website run by the "Syrian Electronic Army," or SEA — the same group that hacked the outlet in 2013.
The Post says the hackers took over portions of the mobile site for about 30 minutes. It did not to appear to affect the desktop website for The Post — just the mobile version.
