Blue Whale Game Banned in Kenya

The Kenya Film Classification Board has written to Google and Facebook to block the Blue Whale online game, which is said to feature a series of traumatising tasks that culminate in suicide. The game has been linked in the media to teen suicides in Russia - but fact -checking website Snopes says the claims are unproven.
