Facebook Stops 49 Groups Organized By Looters To Sell Stolen Artifacts

According to Business Insider, "Looters are selling stolen antiquities from Syria on Facebook, a BBC investigation has found.

Working in cooperation with Syrian archaeologists, the BBC monitored private Facebook groups where antiquities including Roman mosaics were put up for sale..." 49 groups were removed following the investigation, and a few of these groups were still active when they did.

Their reason for removing the group is that "coordinating illegal activity is not allowed" on Facebook.
