Facebook Closes 23 Pages with Fake News.

Published

on

About twenty three Italian own pages have been brought down by Facebook, for spreading fake news and breaking other social network rules.

The closure which includes many pages supporting the country’s populist government parties action, came amid renewed concerns through investigations, that fake news could poison the campaign for the May 26 European Parliament elections, said a Facebook spokesperson in a statement on Monday,

“We have removed a number of fake and duplicate accounts that were violating our authenticity policies, as well as multiple pages for name change.”  

“We also took action against some additional pages that repeatedly posted misinformation. We will take further action if we find additional violations.” 

Facebook however thanked Avaaz for flagging up its concerns and said it was “focused on protecting the integrity of elections across the EU and around the world.’’

In a separate statement, Avaaz said the pages that were closed down had a total of 2.46 million followers and used to spread false or divisive messages against migrants, vaccines and Jews.

President Cyril Ramaphosa accused of misleading parliament

Published

on

South Africa’s corruption watchdog has accused President Cyril Ramaphosa for deliberately misleading the parliament.

The finding was made at the same time that the country’s former President Jacob Zuma announced he was withdrawing from a separate corruption inquiry.

It’s been a dramatic morning in South Africa as the country struggles to tackle high-level corruption.

First came the news that the former President Jacob Zuma was refusing to continue giving evidence at a public inquiry into the corruption that took place on his watch.

He accused the judge-led inquiry of being biased against him. Judge Ray Zondo disagreed and expressed his disappointment.

Then came a separate announcement from the public protector – a state official charged with exposing corruption.

Busisiwe Mkhwebane said the current president had misled parliament over a donation his election campaign received, via his son.

Mr Ramaphosa insists he knew nothing about the donation at the time.

There is speculation here that the public protector has become a partisan figure – and that a sinister campaign is under way, a fight-back by marginalised elites in the governing ANC, who are looking to seize power.

Published

Iran has deny claims the U.S destroyed one of their drone after U.S. official, stated they brought down Iran’s drone through electronic jamming.

Iran officials dismissed report said by President Donald Trump’s assertion that the U.S. Navy has destroyed one of its drones,

saying all of its unmanned planes were safe, but there was no sign of a major Gulf escalation despite fears both sides could blunder into war.

In the latest episode to test nerves around the strategic waterway, Trump said on Thursday the drone had flown to within 1,000 yards (914 meters) of the U.S. warship Boxer in a “provocative and hostile action” and had ignored several calls to stand down.

“All drones belonging to Iran in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz … returned safely to their bases after their mission of identification and control,” Abolfazl Shekarchi, a senior armed forces spokesman, was quoted as saying by the semi-official Tasnim news agency.
