The online stream of the Eurovision semi-finals in Israel was hacked to show warnings of a missile strike and images of blasts in the host city, Tel
Aviv.

The website for KAN's television stations was interrupted on Tuesday evening
-– just as the competition’s first round was beginning – with a fake alert from Israel’s army telling of an impending attack.

Messages such as: ``Risk of Missile Attack, Please Take Shelter'' and:
``Israel is NOT Safe. You Will See!'' appeared on the screen. Animated satellite footage showed explosions in the coastal city.
