Facebook removes 'inauthentic' George Floyd groups

Facebook has removed a number of Justice for George Floyd groups for exhibiting "inauthentic behaviour".

BBC News had highlighted some suspicious groups had switched their focus to call for justice for the black man killed in police custody.

Some, run by accounts seemingly based in Vietnam or Bangladesh, had posted misleading images.

And others had previously focused on coronavirus, 5G conspiracies and support for US President Donald Trump.

A Facebook spokesman said it had "removed the vast majority of them, for violating our policies".
