Facebook blocks political accounts
Facebook banned former Mauritanian Minister Sidi Mohamed Ould Maham from posting on his page after he welcomed Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh to Nouakchott according to sources.
Haniyeh and his group arrived in the country to meet with a number of popular and governmental people, and the former official greeted them warmly.
Ould Maham praised the president's welcome for Haniyeh in his article, stating that it reflects the true popular and official Mauritanian attitudes and beliefs towards the Palestinians and their cause.
The minister's page was restricted for 24 hours after Facebook removed the post.
