A judge in southern Iran has ordered  Zuckerberg to appear in court to answer complaints by individuals who say Facebook-owned applications Instagram and Whatsapp violate their privacy, semiofficial news agency ISNA reported Tuesday. It quoted Ruhollah Momen Nasab, an official with the paramilitary Basij force, as saying that the judge also ordered the two apps blocked.

Although there is no extradition treaty between Iran and the United States, Zuckerberg volunteered to appear before the Iranian court to defend himself and his company against the charges.

Zuckerberg is still deciding whether he will appear by Skype or Google Hangout.
