Facebook said on Friday it had removed several pages from its site used by Italian neo-Nazis to incite violence after European politicians accused the Internet social networking site of allowing a platform to racists.
Seven different group pages had been created on the site with titles advocating violence against gypsies.
"The existence of these groups is repulsive," said Martin Schulz, Socialist leader in the European Parliament which lodged a complaint with the California-based company.
