LAS VEGAS, U.S. -- Facebook will no longer allow its apps to come preinstalled on smartphones made by Huawei Technologies, a decision that deals another blow against a Chinese company hit by restrictions on access to American technology.

Besides Facebook, the suspension will also apply to the Whatsapp messenger and the Instagram photo-sharing app, a Facebook representative said Friday.
