[SAO PAULO] A Brazilian judge overturned a suspension of Facebook Inc's Whatsapp messaging application on Tuesday, before a 72-hour block ordered by a different judge on Monday had expired.

Judge Ricardo Mucio Santana of the Sergipe State Tribunal decided to cancel Monday's ruling, the court said in a statement. The blockage affected some 100 million WhatsApp users.
