Algeria Bans Facebook, Twitter_1

Due to the rate of cheating during examinations, Algeria has blocked Facebook and other social networks. The country has taken the decision to cut off access to social networks after papers and exam questions were leaked online.

The decision comes ahead of the beginning of retakes of some important exams after they were already leaked, and the government said that it had taken the decision so that people would no longer be able to share leaked papers.

Earlier month, police arrested dozens of people in an attempt to find out how parts of the school exams had made it to social media.
