Facebook bug 'kills' users in 'terrible error'

An unusual bug on Facebook briefly labelled many people as dead.

The error on Friday caused the social network to show a memorial banner on user profiles for people who were still alive.

Users posted status updates to reassure friends and family they were not dead, despite Facebook's message.

"This was a terrible error that we have now fixed," a Facebook spokesperson said. "We are very sorry that this happened."
