Europol Officers, Internet Firms Cooperate to Track Isis

A special European police unit will work with Internet companies to track down Isis recruiters on social networks in an attempt to prevent more Europeans from joining the jihadists’ ranks in Iraq and Syria. From 1 July, a team of 15 officers based at Europol headquarters in The Hague will monitor suspect accounts on “all major social media companies” to pinpoint content and request accounts to be shut down, Europol’s director Rob Wainwright, said.
