Social media giant Facebook said that it has banned the Taliban and all content supporting it from its platforms as it considers the group to be a terrorist organisation.

"The Taliban is sanctioned as a terrorist organisation under US law and we have banned them from our services under our Dangerous Organisation policies. This means we remove accounts maintained by or on behalf of the Taliban and prohibit praise, support, and representation of them," a Facebook spokesperson told the BBC.
