(Reuters) – Facebook Inc said on Thursday the company removed 200 pages, groups and accounts on Facebook and Instagram in the Philippines, citing “coordinated inauthentic behaviour”.

The company said its investigation found that such activity was linked to a network organised by a person named Nic Gabunada, former chief executive of Omnicom Media Group Philippines.
