Facebook targets 30,000 fake accounts in France

"Our priority, of course, is to remove the accounts with the largest footprint, with a high amount of activity and a broad reach," Facebook security manager Shabnam Shaik said in a blog post.

The social media giant acknowledged, however, that the purge will not remove all accounts that are spreading fake news. "We know we have to keep getting better," said Shaik.

"These accounts were targeted because they are fake. Full stop," a Facebook spokesman told CNNTech. He said that taking down fake accounts helps prevent hoaxes, spam, political trolling and fake news.

Murray: I'll be back for France

World No 1 Murray sat out last weekend's tie with Canada in the wake of his surprise fourth-round exit at January's Australian Open.

Britain won 3-2 in Murray's absence but will be bolstered by the Scot's return for a last-eight meeting likely to be played on clay.

"My body's pretty pleased I took some time off," he toldĀ Sky Sports News HQ. "I've had enough rest and I'll look forward to [France].

"It'll be tough. I assume they'll probably put it on clay. I don't know where they'll play it, but Monte Carlo would be good."
