An article claiming that billionaire financier George Soros was arrested for interference in the 2020 US election has received hundreds of shares and thousands of views on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. The report includes an image of a purported indictment against Soros from the US state of Pennsylvania. The claim is false; a spokesperson for Soros’ philanthropic organisation said the report is “entirely false” and the purported indictment image was doctored.
