Facebook blocks more accounts that may be linked to foreign entity

Nov 7 (Reuters) - Facebook Inc said on Tuesday that it blocked more accounts after a website claiming to be associated with Russia-based Internet Research agency published a list of Instagram accounts they claimed to have created.

“We had already blocked most of these accounts yesterday, and have now blocked the rest,” Nathaniel Gleicher, Facebook’s head of cyber security policy said in a statement.
