Cyber attacks' China connection

A cooking school in Jinan city has been traced to hackers who broke into US officials' personal accounts.

    A cyber war may be on the horizon after Google accused hackers in China of breaking into the personal email accounts of US officials - an attack they say originated from a cooking school in the city of Jinan.

    Beijing has denied any state involvement, despite admitting the existence of an elite cyber wing of the People's Liberation Army.

    The Pentagon has responded saying it will consider computer sabotage an act of war and would consider responding to such acts as it would any other threat to the country.

    Al Jazeera's Melissa Chan reports from Jinan, China.
