Facebook attacked over knife game

Anti-knife crime campaigners have attacked Facebook for allowing a knifing game.

The site’s members have been able to use a blade icon – another company’s creation – to virtually “shank” other users.

John Knox, whose nephew Rob was stabbed to death in May, told the Sun the website was “disgusting”, with the game targeting young knife-carrying thugs.

The icon now appears to have been removed from Facebook.
