Austrian broadcaster ORF sues vice-chancellor Strache over 'lies' post

Austria's public broadcaster, the ORF, has filed a lawsuit against the country's deputy leader after he accused it and one of its news presenters of lying. Vice Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache, head of the far-right Freedom Party, made the accusation on Facebook. The row started two weeks ago when Mr Strache posted a picture on Facebook of Mr Wolf with the words: "There is a place where lies become news. That place is ORF.".

ORF said it was also taking legal action against Facebook for not deleting Mr Strache's post.
