A Syrian refugee is suing Facebook for allegedly failing to remove photos falsely linking him to terrorism.

Anas Modamani, 19, made headlines in September after a selfie he took with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, went viral.

However, since then, the image has been used to falsely link Modamani to attacks at Brussels Airport, Berlin Christmas Market and even on a homeless man.
