LONDON (AP) - Britain's justice minister says Facebook has deleted the pages of 30 UK prisoners after they used the Internet to taunt their victims.
The move follows several incidents in which British criminals have reportedly used the social networking site to communicate with conspirators and act against victims.
Justice Minister Jack Straw tells the BBC that outrage over inmates' online activities prompted him to contact Facebook.
Straw says he hopes Facebook will soon "press the delete button" whenever the government asks to have an offending profile removed.
