WARSAW - Poland's digital economy minister accused Facebook of censorship on Monday after the company suspended some users' profiles for using a little-known far-right symbol.
The Falanga symbol, depicting a stylised hand holding a sword, was used by a banned radical nationalist group in the 1930s but is legal in Poland and other countries. It now serves as the logo of a far-right Polish group called ONR.
The row follows a wider global dispute over Facebook's standards for removing content. Seventy rights groups asked the company in a letter last month to clarify its internal policies, which Facebook has since said it will review.
