YouTube removes bomb suspect’s videos

YouTube firstly protected hosting messages from a hate preacher linked to the Sri Lanka attacks, saying it only found one which was in break of its policies.

Following the deadly attack on Easter Sunday, the Google-owned firm said its teams were working around the clock to guarantee that videos featuring the Islamist preacher are removed.

Sky News found videos on YouTube featuring lectures by Zahran Hashim, the man whom authorities suspect of inspiring attackers behind the killings which killed at least 359 people.

The video platform said it was eliminating all videos that featured Zahran Hashim other than those which depicted him in context, such as part of a media report.

In a statement, YouTube said it “rejects forceful extremism and we take swift action against terrorism content”.
