No children or ducks harmed by novichok, say health officials

Thursday 23:40 GMT

Facebook Inc. co-founder and Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg is effectively begging for U.S. regulators to step in and give clear policies for internet data privacy and harmful content, a worthy request that still could be self-serving.

During the company’s call with investors, Zuckerberg once again called on the U.S. government to step in and regulate certain areas for internet companies, after almost two years of constant scandals, many involving the misuse of its user data.
