G7 pressures Internet firms to remove extremist content

The G7 has put pressure on Internet companies and Internet service providers to increase their efforts to remove extremist content, accusing them of not taking sufficient action to stop terrorist organisations in promoting violence. ‘The G7 calls for Communication Service Providers and social media companies to substantially increase their efforts to address terrorist content,’ the statement reads. British Prime Minister Theresa May told reporters that she wished to see Internet companies ‘report this vile content to the authorities and block the users who spread it’.
