Iranian Court Summons Facebook Founder for 'Breaching Privacy'

An Iranian judge has summoned Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg to answer allegations that his company's apps have breached people's privacy, it was reported Tuesday. The court in Fars province ordered that Zuckerberg address unspecified "violation of privacy" claims made by Iranians over the reach of Facebook-owned apps, ISNA news agency reported.

Access to social networks, including Twitter and Facebook, are routinely blocked by Iranian authorities, as are other websites considered "un-Islamic" or detrimental to the regime.
