The Iranian regime's judiciary has sentenced eight Facebook activists for 'plotting against national security', official state-run news agency IRNA reported.

The report by IRNA did not identify the activists but said they were convicted of plotting against national security, spreading propaganda against the ruling system and insulting officials.

Facebook is officially banned in Iran, as are other popular social media websites like Twitter and YouTube.
