DHS Secretary Praises Tech Firms But Wants More Action Against Extremism

Technology firms have improved cooperation with the authorities in tackling online militant material but still must act quicker to remove propaganda fueling a rise in homegrown extremism, acting U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke said. The United States and Britain will push social media firms at a meeting of G7 interior ministers this week to do more on the issue, Duke told reporters in London where she had been meeting British Home Secretary (interior minister) Amber Rudd.
