    • UN investigators have accused Facebook of spreading hate speech in the potential genocide in Myanmar.
    • More than 650 Rohingya Muslims have fled the country, and have described executions and rapes by Myanmar security forces.
    • "I'm afraid that Facebook has now turned into a beast, and not what it originally intended," a UN investigator said.

    GENEVA (Reuters) - U.N. human rights experts investigating a possible genocide in Myanmar said on Monday that Facebook had played a role in spreading hate speech there.

    Facebook had no immediate comment on the criticism on Monday, although in the past the company has said that it was working to remove hate speech in Myanmar and kick off people who shared such content consistently.
