Brazil’s government says a hacker breached the Twitter account of the nation’s federal police and posted false word that there was a bomb threat in the World Cup stadium where Brazil took on Chile. The hacked message was posted about an hour before kickoff Saturday and said that there “was a confirmed bomb threat” in the stadium in the city of Belo Horizonte, and that “an evacuation is not being ruled out.” The office of the Brazilian presidency said on its own Twitter account about an hour later that the message was false. The fake message was removed.
