17 Minutes Of Carnage: NATIONALIST Brenton Tarrant Broadcast His Killings On Line

17 minutes of carnage: how New Zealand gunman broadcast his killings online

LONDON (Reuters) - A gunman who killed 49 people at two New Zealand mosques live-streamed the attacks on Facebook for 17 minutes using an app designed for extreme sports enthusiasts, with copies still being shared on social media hours later.

The live footage of Friday’s attacks, New Zealand’s worst-ever mass shooting, was first posted to Facebook and has since been shared on Twitter, Alphabet Inc’s YouTube and Facebook-owned Whatsapp and Instagram.

Facebook, Twitter and YouTube all said they had taken steps to remove copies of the videos. Facebook said it had deleted the gunman’s accounts “shortly after the livestream commenced” after being alerted by police.

But Reuters found videos of the shooting on all five platforms up to 10 hours after the attacks, which began at 1345 local time in the city of Christchurch. Twitter and Google said they were working to stop the footage being reshared. Facebook did not immediately respond to additional questions.

In a 15-minute window, Reuters found five copies of the footage on YouTube uploaded under the search term “New Zealand” and tagged with categories including “education” and “people & blogs”. In another case, the video was shared by a verified Instagram user in Indonesia with more than 1.6 million followers. The user did not respond to a Reuters request for comment.

Facebook, Twitter, Alphabet Inc and other social media companies have previously acknowledged the challenges they face policing content on their platforms. Source

CIA Officers Killed On US Air Force Bombardier E-11A Jet Shot Down By The Taliban.....

Taliban claims it shot down US Air Force plane in Afghanistan carrying CIA officers The Taliban has claimed a “passenger plane” that crashed in Afghanistan was actually a US Air Force jet it deliberately shot down. The jet came down in the country’s eastern Ghazni province, which is controlled by the military organisation, this afternoon. Local officials initially reported the jet to be a Boeing 737-400 plane that belonged to Ariana Airlines, carrying 83 passengers. But the state-owned carrier quickly moved to deny the claims as new pictures emerged from the crash site.
