Will the FBI coordinate with local authorities abroad?

i dont know
You want to press for that to happen. Practically consider changing username and passwords do this person is unable to contact you or your friends. Consider reporting person to Facebook customer service that may block that user. Another option is having a lawyer locally send a warning letter and secure a court order to enjoin such conduct.

what if i cant afford a lawyer
You may use a volunteer or pro bono lawyer. But the authorities and Facebook customer support are more practical options and free! Good luck.
