Facebook bans 12 British far-right groups and individuals

Facebook has banned a number of far-right groups and their leaders in the UK after determining that they ’spread hate’. The platform announced Thursday that it had imposed bans on the British National Party, Britain First, the English Defence League, Knights Templar International and the National Front. Seven individuals associated with the groups were also banned.
