Facebook says Tuesday it is cooperating with French authorities probing the killing of a police commander and his partner in an incident that included a live-streamed video statement on the leading social network.
“We are working closely with the French authorities as they deal with this terrible crime,” Facebook says in a statement following Monday’s fatal stabbing of 42-year-old police commander Jean-Baptiste Salvaing and his 36-year-old partner Jessica Schneider in a town near Paris.
“Terrorists and acts of terrorism have no place on Facebook. Whenever terrorist content is reported to us, we remove it as quickly as possible. We treat takedown requests by law enforcement with the highest urgency.”
