Facebook has backed down over the posting of videos depicting beheadings after being branded "irresponsible" by U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron.

The social media website said it had "re-examined" the issue and removed a beheading video after concluding that it "improperly and irresponsibly glorifies violence." It vowed to "strengthen the enforcement" of policies on graphic content, removing posts which celebrate violence and taking into account whether they are being shared "responsibly."
