WhatsApp Video of BBC news alerting on WW III
A video has surfaced on WhatsApp and other social media showing that tensions have escalated between Russia and NATO forces. The video is shown as a BBC news report with news anchors and video footage of missiles being fired at each other and finally a nuclear mushroom cloud. The fake video then broadcasts a fake emergency message from Ministry of Defence warning us to take cover because a nuclear attack is imminent.
is it true? HOAX
This fake message is professionally created and can easily create panic among the public. Luckily for us, all we have to do is check the BBC website for such news. And that’s what most people did and easily averted any mass hysteria.
We went a bit further and checked with BBC. We also send them the video footage which they showed in their Facebook feed.
Always remember to check on the BBC official website before you believe such news on WhatsApp or FB.
