The CIA have claimed they do not know where Tupac is during a light-hearted Q+A with their Twitter followers.

The US Central Intelligence Agency opened themselves up to the public yesterday as they celebrated one month on the social network. To mark the occasion they vowed to answer the five most frequently asked questions they get sent from the public.

Included in the five answers was information as to whether they are hiring, if they know people's Twitter passwords and also where Tupac is. Despite the rapper being killed in 2006, rumours about his death continue to circulate. The CIA did their part in putting an end to suggestions that the rapper may still be alive, tweeting: "No, we don't know where Tupac is."

A new musical based on the lyrics of Tupac Shakur, Holler If Ya Hear Me, opened last month in New York at the city's Palace Theatre. Musician, poet, actor and writer Saul Williams leads the cast of the non-biographical play, which is based on the late rapper's lyrics.
