Facebook blocks 115 accounts ahead of US midterm elections

Facebook announced Monday evening that it had blocked 115 accounts on its services that may have been engaged in ‘coordinated inauthentic behaviour’ ahead of the U.S. midterm elections. The company said U.S. law enforcement notified Facebook on Sunday of the accounts’ online activity, saying they believed the accounts ‘may be linked to foreign entities.’

The company blocked 85 accounts on Instagram and 30 accounts on Facebook. The company said it would provide updates on the situation, including whether the accounts are linked to the Russian-based Internet Research Agency, once it knows more.
