Facebook shut down the account of train attack suspect Ayoub El-Khazzani for “terrorist content” within hours of the shooting, a spokeswoman for the social media giant said Tuesday.
The account was deactivated Saturday for “violating policies and community standards that forbid content promoting terrorism” and “terrorist content,” company spokeswoman Michelle Gilbert told NBC News. She did not provide further details.
Police reportedly believed the 26-year-old Moroccan’s account might have been deleted by an accomplice after Friday night’s attack and ensuing struggle, which left an American in hospital with gun wounds.
Prosecutors in Paris were expected to announce later Tuesday whether they would bring charges against Khazzani or request an extension to his police custody.
Local television news channel BFM-TV showed pictures of a police convoy as Khazzani was reportedly brought before a judge.
