A BBC News investigation found hundreds of accounts going live from Syrian refugee camps, with children begging for donations.

Some were receiving up to $1,000 (£900) an hour - but when they withdrew the cash, TikTok had taken up to 70%.

In future, only adults would be able to "send virtual gifts or access monetisation features", TikTok said. And, "in the coming weeks", it would let users run adult-only livestreams.

For five months, the BBC's Global Disinformation Unit, BBC Arabic and BBC Eye Investigations followed more than 300 TikTok accounts livestreaming from north-west Syria.

TikTok's rules say you must not directly solicit for gifts and must "prevent the harm, endangerment or exploitation" of minors on the platform.

When News BBC used the in-app system to report 30 accounts featuring children begging, TikTok said there had been no violation of its policies in any of the cases.

After BBC News contacted TikTok directly for comment, the company banned all of the accounts. TikTok said this type of content was not allowed on its platform
