  • New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern wants to discuss live-streaming with Facebook after mosque attacks

Using what appeared to be a helmet-mounted camera, the gunman live-streamed in horrifying detail 17 minutes of the attack on worshippers at the Al Noor Mosque, where at least 41 people died. Mr Morrison said that social media companies had "cooperated" since the attack.

Facebook said it took down a live stream of the shootings and removed the shooter's Facebook and Instagram accounts after being alerted by police.

"We did as much as we could to remove, or seek to have removed, some of the footage that was being circulated in the aftermath of this terrorist attack", Ardern said.

"Ultimately, though, it has been up to those platforms to facilitate their removal and support their removal". This is a problem that goes well beyond New Zealand, it has played out in other parts of the world.

And in a 15-minute window, it also found five copies of the footage on YouTube uploaded under the search term "New Zealand" and tagged with categories including "education" and "people & blogs".

Facebook has on its part said that as many as 1.5 million videos of the attack were removed from its platform in the first 24 hours.

"In the first 24 hours we removed 1.5 million videos of the attack globally, of which over 1.2 million were blocked at upload..."

The social networking giant also said that it is also removing all the edited versions of the videos that do not show graphic content.

"Our hearts go out to the victims, their families and the community affected by this horrendous act", Facebook New Zealand spokeswoman Mia Garlick said in a statement.

"I haven't spoken to her directly, but she has reached out in acknowledgement of what has occurred here in New Zealand".

Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook's chief operating officer, has sent condolences over the shootings at two mosques that killed 50 people, some of which were livestreamed over the social media platform. "This is an issue that I will look to be discussing directly with Facebook", Ardern noted.
