LONDON, Nov. 6 (UPI) -- Social networking Web site Facebook has removed a group titled "Dead Babies Make Me Laugh" after protests from mothers in Britain who had lost children.

The deleted forum had hundreds of members and was full of morbid jokes revolving around dead babies, The Sun reported Thursday.

"We'll remove any violent or threatening groups," Facebook announced after the forum was removed.
