Back in March, a white supremacist used a head-mounted camera to broadcast the live footage of the killing the innocent people by attacking two mosques in New Zealand’s city Christchurch.

After an incident, in May, the Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern and several other world leaders initiated a campaign called “Christchurch Call to Action” against the online extremism. That campaign was later joined by Facebook and other major social networking platforms.

According to the statement issued by Facebook on Tuesday, it was in the process of updating its policies for dealing with the extremism and online hate.
