Russia's top online social network, VKontakte, has been put on a 'black list' that bans it from distributing content in the country, according to a posting on the communications regulator's web site.
VKontakte has 210 million registered users, of whom 47 million log on daily dwarfing Russian Facebook users.
Pavel Durov the social media sites founder fled Russia last month after being implicated in a bizarre traffic incident that preceded the sale of a large stake in the business.
VKontakte spokesman Georgy Lobushkin told Reuters he did not have any information regarding the decision by regulator Roskomnazdzor. VKontakte's web site (www.vk.com) was still working. Roskomnadzor had no immediate comment.
A former British Army captain and ex-chairman of the Armed Forces Muslim Association has said he agrees with the Prime Minister that the murder of a soldier was in no way representative of Islam.
Afzal Amin said: "There are three million Muslims in Britain...a fully integrated body of people so there's no way this attack is representative of what it means to be British and Muslim".
Mr Amin, a prospective Conservative candidate at the next election, also told Daybreak that the Armed Forces were at the "heart" of what it means to be British and that serving men and women should be able to wear their uniforms in public.
Mike Dixon from Citizens Advice said the charity is concerned that council tax benefit cuts could see a rise in the number of bailiffs cashing in on people who are struggling.
He said: "[We have] a bailiff market that is frankly just out of control, so we've got rogue bailiffs threatening people bullying people's children, taking things they're not allowed to, we've got a real problem here that in the next few months is just going to crystallise."
A mother and her 10-year-old daughter died after being poisoned by carbon monoxide fumes as they slept on a moored boat on Lake Windermere, according to the initial findings of a marine accident investigation.
Exhaust fumes from a generator, whose improvised exhaust and silencer system had become detached, had spread into the cabin where Kelly Webster, 36, and daughter Lauren Thornton were asleep.
"The boat's carbon monoxide sensor system did not alarm because it was not connected to a power supply," said an interim report by the Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB).
A full MAIB report into the incident will follow later.
Two women who were pictured tending to Lee Rigby after the attack in Woolwich have spoken to the Mirror saying that facing the attackers and trying to help him, "had to be done."
Gemini Donnelly-Martin, 20, told the paper she and her mother Amanda, 44, approached the two men and asked if they could comfort the dead soldier.
Gemini said: “We did what anyone would do. We just wanted to take care of the man. It wasn’t brave. Anyone would have done it. It had to be done."
Brother Simeon, 21, spoke on behalf of their mother, saying: “I told her I didn’t think my mum should have done what she did. She put herself in danger for a total stranger. He could have gone for her.
“But she told me she only did it because she thought it could have been her own son.”
A man told the local Skagit Valley Herald newspaper he felt a vibration and looked in his rear view mirror to see that the part of bridge he had just crossed was no longer behind him. "I thought something was wrong with my car at first," he said.
Kari Ranten, a spokeswoman for Skagit Valley Hospital, said two people who were injured in the collapse were on their way to the hospital for medical care and that another person was being taken to a different area hospital.
Washington state authorities have told the Associated Press that there have been no deaths as in the collapse of a highway bridge north of Seattle.
The major highway bridge linking Seattle with Canada and the rest of the Pacific Northwest region had collapsed dumping at least a handful of vehicles and people into a river.
Mr Justice Tugendhat will give his decision on the meaning of an allegedly libellous tweet she sent after a Newsnight report that wrongly implicated the Tory peer in child sex abuse allegations.
Earlier this month the judge reserved his decision in the case.
If the judgment goes in Lord McAlpine's favour, there will be another hearing at a later date on the appropriate level of damages, unless the two sides reach a settlement.
