No threats ahead of New Zealand shooting

Prime Minister Scott Morrison

The prime minister wants G20 nations to consider practical ways to force companies like Facebook and Google to stop broadcasting atrocities and violent crimes.

Morrison has written a letter to G20 chairman and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe saying: "It's unacceptable to treat the internet as an ungoverned space".

"There is very real discussions that have to be had about how these facilities and capabilities, as they exist on social media, can continue to be offered where there can't be the assurances given at a technology level", Mr. Morrison explained.

"We utterly condemn this despicable terror attack and are firmly resolved to fight terrorism, together with New Zealand, Australia and the global community", Suga said at a news conference.

The attacks were live-streamed on Facebook.

Morrison has spoken publicly several times to denounce extremism since the attack that killed 50 people in neighbouring New Zealand on Friday.

"Many leaders need to take a page from her. Humanity is something we should all have, some practice it and some don't, and she has it and we commend her for that", Mr el-Biza said.

"It's clear that while social media companies have co-operated with authorities to remove some of that disgusting content, more needs to be done".

Tarrant, 28, was not on any security watchlist in Australia or New Zealand, despite online profiles linked to him containing material promoting white supremacist views.

The Government Communications Security Bureau also said in a statement on Monday night that it welcomed an inquiry that Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has ordered into intelligence and security services that failed to detect the risk from the attacker or his plans.

"I'm sure we can work together to make sure they protect our citizens by ensuring that the tools that they have developed are not used by terrorists as weapons to advance their agendas of hate", he said.

Social media expert Damien Spry, who lectures at the University of South Australia, said Facebook had struggled to cope with the popularity of its live broadcasts.

"Then the race is on and before you know it, it's impossible - you're playing a game of whack-a-mole".

He said the online community should not be used to absolve politicians and mainstream media from their responsibility in fuelling hate speech. Australian Brenton Tarrant has been charged with murder in the attacks that also left 50 injured.
