Facebook has deleted the Myanmar military’s main page for breaching its standards prohibiting the incitement of violence, as police arrested a well-known actor wanted for opposing the military coup and thousands gathered for mass protests.

Facebook said it deleted the military or Tatmadaw’s page under its standards prohibiting the incitement of violence.

“In line with our global policies, we’ve removed the Tatmadaw True News Information Team Page from Facebook for repeated violations of our Community Standards prohibiting incitement of violence and coordinating harm,” Facebook said in a statement.
