The popular messaging platform Telegram will block channels that called for anti-Semitic violence in Russia's Dagestan region, Telegram founder Pavel Durov said...

"Channels calling for violence will be blocked for violating the rules of Telegram, Google, Apple and the entire civilised world," Durov wrote on his own Telegram channel.

Durov posted a screenshot from "Utro Dagestan" (Morning Dagestan), a channel that contained threats to the tiny community of Jews living in Dagestan.
