Facebook says it has expanded its fact-checking programme to include Lithuania and four other countries ahead of next month's European Parliament elections.

The social network has recently announced adding five new local facti-checking partners to its programme in Lithuania, Croatia, Greece, Northern Ireland and Portugal.

“These organizations will review and rate the accuracy of content on Facebook,” it said in a press release, adding that the fact-checking partners were accredited by the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN).

The Lithuanian partner is the online news website 15min.lt.
