All messages being posted through these accounts are not from Pakistan Embassy in Algeria.
Earlier a tweet was shared from the hacked Twitter handle that cited “Embassies ordered to divert funds to Ukraine for evacuating Pakistani Nationals. Till date neither any Pakistani evacuated nor we have funds left to pay salary to our employees. Should we also start asking funds from India as Pak Nationals are using Indian flag to flee Ukraine”.
Last year, the social media accounts of the Pakistan embassy in Serbia were hacked. The foreign office said “The Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts of the Embassy of Pakistan in Serbia have been hacked. Messages being posted on these accounts are not from the Embassy of Pakistan in Serbia.”
