Facebook, YouTube sued by French Muslim group over the New Zealand attack video




The French Council of the Muslim Faith (CFCM), a leading representative of Muslims in France, on Monday said it was suing Facebook and YouTube after footage of the Christchurch massacre was streamed on their platforms.  

The mass-shooting at two mosques in New Zealand was livestreamed by the attacker through his Facebook profile for 17 minutes.  

A few hours after the attack, footage from the stream could still be found on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, as well as Facebook-owned Instagram and Whatsapp.  

Abdallah Zekri, president of the observatory of Islamophobia at the CFCM confirmed the legal complaint.
