Algeria Temporarily Blocks Facebook And Other Social Media Networks In An Attempt To Stop Exams Malpractices

In an attempt to stop cheating in upcoming school exams, Algeria has temporarily blocked Facebook and some other social media networks . The country has taken the decision to cut off access to social networks after papers and exam questions were leaked online. The government said that it  had taken the decision so that people would no longer be able to share leaked papers.

In a statement issued on Sunday, the Ministry of Post and Information and Communication Technology said that the "cut of social networks has a direct relationship with the matriculation exams" which begin on Sunday.

It added that all other parts of the internet were not affected.
