WENGZHOU , China, Aug. 6 (UPI) -- Wengzhou, China, television viewers saw their programs interrupted by a string of anti-Communist messages across their screens Friday evening.

Television broadcasts in the coastal Chinese city of nine million were hacked, with messages superimposed over normal programming.

"Damn the Chinese Communist Party's mouthpieces: China Central Television, Peoples' Daily, the Propaganda Department and the State Radio and Film Administration" -- references to China's state-run broadcaster and newspaper, and the state agencies responsible for censorship, respectively.

Other messages read: "the Communist bandits are the real criminals" and "Friends, do not cooperate with Communist devils," according to Foreign Policy.

Another called for the release of Liu Xiaobo, a jailed dissident. There has been no claim of responsibility for the incident, and no immediate response from the Chinese government.
