After London Terror, UK PM Wants More Internet Controlled

After London Terror, UK PM Wants More Internet Controlled
British Prime Minister, Theresa May, again asked the world began to set the internet to fight terrorists. This appeal was presented in response to London terror, which occurred on Saturday night (3/6/2017).

Following the terror attacks in London, May wanted some new rules for the cyber world. The regulation is to eliminate the safe space for extremists in the online realm.


According to May, internet and Internet service companies provide opportunities for such ideologies to flourish. The cyber space, he said, must be set to prevent the spread of extremist and terrorist plans.

"We can not allow a safe space for this ideology to continue to grow, we must work together with democratic governments to reach an international agreement governing cyber space, in order to prevent the spread of extremist and terrorist plans," explained May, as quoted from Softpedia.


This is not the first time May appeal to international cooperation and pressure the internet companies.

After previous terror attacks, he criticized WhatsApp for providing end-to-end encryption to users, so local law enforcement could not see the attacker's last message.
