(AP) — Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is apologizing for the internet giant’s failure to prevent some of the internet tools it has developed from being misused.

During a testimony at the European Parliament Zuckerberg said Tuesday that whether it was “fake news, foreign interference in elections and developers misusing people’s information. We didn’t take a broad enough view of our responsibilities.”

Speaking to a group of EU parliamentary group leaders in Brussels, he said: “That was a mistake, and I’m sorry for it.”
