New Zealand deems sharing of attack video an 'offense'
(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) New Zealand said on Monday (March 18) that any possession or sharing of a video showing Friday's (March 15) attack at a mosque that killed at least 50 people, has been classed as an offence.
The gunman who attacked two mosques on Friday 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.
Facebook said it removed 1.5 million videos globally of the New Zealand mosque attack in the first 24 hours after the attack.
It said it is also removing all edited versions of the video that do not show graphic content out of respect for the people affected by the mosque shooting and the concerns of local authorities.
