Facebook Inc will start labeling Russian, Chinese and other state-controlled media organizations, and later this summer will block any ads from such outlets that target U.S. users, it said on Thursday. The world`s biggest social network will apply the label to Russia`s Sputnik, Iran`s Press TV and China`s Xinhua News, according to a partial list Facebook provided. The company will apply the label to about 200 pages at the outset.
