Police in Brazil have arrested the vice president of the social media company Facebook in Latin America.

According to BBC News, police said Diego Dzodan, an Argentine national, has repeatedly refused to comply with court orders to hand over data for use in a criminal investigation into drugs trafficking.

His arrest relates to the messaging service WhatsApp, owned by Facebook.

In a statement, Facebook called Mr. Dzodan’s arrest an “extreme and disproportionate measure”.
