New Zealand and France have decided to lead the efforts to stop the use of social media to organize and promote terrorism in the wake of Christchurch attacks.

In a statement, New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said she would co-chair a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron on 15th of next month in an effort to curb online extremism.

She said Christchurch attacks saw social media used in an unprecedented way as a tool to promote an act of terrorism and hate.
