But coming from those governments, I wouldn’t be surprised if it shuts down more anti-jihad and anti-terror sites than actual jihadist and terror sites. From the BBC, with thanks to RB:
Five European governments are setting up a hi-tech team to monitor how terrorists and criminals use the net.
The group will make recommendations on shutting down websites that break terrorism laws….
The five countries also agreed to make it easier to swap data about terror suspects and thefts of explosives.
The interior ministers of Spain, Britain, France, Germany and Italy – the G5 – met in Granada this week for an anti-terrorism summit.
To combat terrorism the ministers agreed to make it easier for police forces in their respective states to share data about suspects connected to international terror groups.
Information shared could also involve intelligence about money laundering, the forgery of identity papers, stolen cars, DNA data, missing persons and unidentified corpses.
Part of this anti-terror work will involve the creation of the technical team that will keep an eye on how organised crime groups and terrorists make of the web.
Many criminals have moved many well-known crimes to the web because the returns are so good and the chance of being detected is still relatively low.
The group is also likely to make recommendations on shutting down websites that contravene laws on inciting acts of terror….
