G7 demands internet giants crack down on extremist content


Taormina, May 26: The G7 nations on Friday demanded action from internet providers and social media firms against extremist content online, vowing to step up their fight against terrorism after the Manchester attack.

G7 demands internet giants crack down on extremist content

"The G7 calls for Communication Service Providers and social media companies to substantially increase their efforts to address terrorist content," Britain, the United States and their G7 partners said in a statement. The G7 leaders agreed in the statement to commit to tackling extremism on the Internet, Gentiloni said, calling this the "breeding-ground and amplifier" of terrorism.

British Prime Minister Theresa May was filmed thanking peers for the support received following Monday's attack on the Manchester Arena after a concert by US singer Ariana Grande in which 22 people died.

The G7 needed to show "fierce determination to ensure that we use every tool available to us to fight against terrorism and protect our people", she said.
