FACEBOOK REMOVES PAGE RUN BY MYANMAR MILITARY

Hours after protesters were killed during rallies against the military coup in Myanmar, Facebook removed a page run by the country's armed forces, the company told Deutsche Presse-Agentur (dpa).

"This morning, in line with our global policies, we removed the Tatmadaw True News Information Team Page from Facebook for repeated violations of our Community Standards prohibiting incitement of violence and coordinating harm," a Facebook official wrote. Myanmar's armed forces are known as the Tatmadaw.


On Saturday, at least two people were killed in protests against the coup, according to media reports, and at least six other participants in a rally in the city of Mandalay were injured. Security forces fired live ammunition at demonstrators in the Southeast Asian nation's second-largest city. Myanmar has a population of 50 million.

In a separate Reuters report, Facebook said that in 2018, it banned army chief Min Aung Hlaing - now the military ruler - and 19 other senior officers and organizations and took down hundreds of pages and accounts run by military members for coordinated inauthentic behavior.


Ahead of November elections, Facebook announced it had taken down a network of 70 fake accounts and pages operated by members of the military that had posted either positive content about the army or criticism of Suu Kyi and her party.
