quite certain and then there is such a long purse is one of them can only imagine their anguish the prime minister is promising to tight new zealand's gun laws what are we expecting from her meeting with cabinet today. is she being told that you might look at speaking to bend military style meanwhile a man she didn't down very soon after the attacks that new zealand guy who was one challenge and they're being since raised over the years about loopholes and the laws it's not. very easy to get hold of that firearms license and there is an application process it's not like the unique changes the one culture. and there are. two when i was in. the government will be looking at that closely mary speaking to the house after she's met with ken and. early in

christchurch thank you for that. digital reporter thanks from leeds here in the studio for more on this can can you tell us. do you think that facebook can really do much to stop this from happening well facebook cannot really remove every single copy if that's that video it is not impossible but it will be very difficult we know that facebook has been working around the clock to remove copies of that video and it has an internal database of blocked video and the system can automatically detect and remove copies of the video once it gets uploaded again so far so good however there's a big problem with the system because it's still floor so if you use or makes changes to that video let's say by adding mark then that system can be tricked and so that you say what you theoretically still be able to upload the video so it's

really difficult to completely wipe off a video once it's been recorded and shared multiple times and saliva streaming really has a lot of potential risks or risks. and concerning this new zealand's prime minister has spoken to facebook's chief operating officer let's have a listen. i've had contact. from. i haven't spoken to him directly but she has reached out. and acknowledgement of what has occurred here in new zealand and this is an issue that i will look to be discussing directly with facebook. so new zealand's prime minister says she wants to talk to facebook but it's a giant global condom company how else can it be made accountable i say. basically more pressure from the government and from the consumers and more

legislations have to be in place actually we have an example from germany on hate speech so everybody knows that hate speech is a global problem it's a big problem and facebook said it did everything possible to combat that problem. but people weren't seeing any changes and that last year as a hate speech laws passed in germany and all of a sudden facebook actually recruited a lot of moderation this and it even deployed a new technologies to combat the hate speech problem so there is an example of how regulations and how pressure can actually change a company's stance and so i guess we'll just have to make facebook to prioritize the fight against the spread of extremists content and thoughts but i think you and i could probably both imagine the free speech advocates saying well you're endangering democracy with this kind of government control of social media potentially so of course we can say it too much control of course it's not good
11:07 pm
like it could be an infringement of our freedoms but we have to keep in mind that facebook has two billion acts if you use this and that's a lot and it has an enormous reach and so after this christchurch attack clearly something needs to be done. i guess we can compare to situation to having c.c.t.v. zone the streets if we have more c.c.t.v. is on the streets we could feel safer but that means automatically giving up part of our privacy as well so i guess we'll just have to find a balance between security and freedom ok do you do abuse social media reporting surely thank you for that. and now to some of the other stories making news around the world. firefighters in the american state of texas are battling to contain a blaze at a petrochemicals terminal authorities warned residents in deer park to stay indoors is the second fire in his many days at a houston area fuel storage facility. thousands of serbian anti-government
