Facebook Inc. is taking down Instagram posts that express support for Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani, who was killed in a U.S. strike, CNN reported.

Pictures run by or on behalf of sanctioned people and organizations, as well as posts that commend or support their actions will be removed because the social-media company operates under U.S. laws, a Facebook spokesman said in a statement to the news agency.
