TEHRAN, IRAN – Mark Zuckerberg has been ordered show his face in Iran. The internet mogul is wanted in court to answer complaints about the company violating privacy (which is kind of ironic, seeing as the Iranian government bans Facebook).

Basically, the court case has to do with Facebook-owned applications like Instagram and Whatsapp. The government actually ended up blocking them too, but they are still reportedly up-and-running, at least for now.

It is highly unlikely that Zuckerberg will actually go to the Islamic country. The U.S. does not have an extradition treaty with Iran.
