The Facebook social network website is not available anymore for lawmakers at the parliament, An Nahar newspaper reported on Monday.

MPs were surprised for being banned from accessing their accounts on the network in their offices, it said.

The daily reported that the reason behind the ban is gambling games -- such as Texas Hold'em Poker-- that are available on Facebook.

Facebook is a social networking service and website launched in February 2004. As of January 2011, Facebook has more than 600 million active users.

it's only in lebanon such things happen, if that happen in a democratic country, the parliament who did that will be asked to explain that to the court and a commity will be created to investigate about that, the parliament will be punished because 1st the office is not a game place, it's financed by our money. Shame on such responsable
