G7 security ministers to press tech firms on combating extremism

Security officials attending the Group of Seven conference plan to press social media and technology companies to work harder to prevent  extremists from using technology to spread their views, reports David Ljunggren for Reuters.

Members of  Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism, which consists of Google, Twitter, Facebook and Microsoft, are scheduled to address G7 delegates on April 24, 2018. The group was set up after public pressure from major governments after terrorists behind attacks were radicalized via the internet.
