Facebook Disables, Restores Accounts for Palestinian Journalists

Facebook disabled several prominent Palestinian journalists’ accounts, following user reports that they were violating Facebook standards. Facebook later reinstated their accounts, blaming their removal on an error: “The pages were removed in error and restored as soon as we were able to investigate,” a Facebook spokesperson said, using an excuse that didn’t need dusting off, since Facebook has offered variations of it at least four times in past six months.
