1.5 million videos of Christchurch mosque attack in New Zealand removed by Facebook

Facebook said it removed 1.5 million videos globally of the Christchurch mosque attack in New Zealand in the first 24 hours after the attack.

"In the first 24 hours we removed 1.5 million videos of the attack globally, of which over 1.2 million were blocked at upload," Facebook said in a tweet late Saturday.

The company said it is also removing all edited versions of the video that do not show graphic content out of respect for the people affected by the mosque shooting and the concerns of local authorities.
