WASHINGTON—The head of the House Homeland Security Committee asked four technology companies to attend a closed-door briefing next week on their efforts to prevent violent videos from being disseminated in the wake of last week’s mass shooting in New Zealand.

Relatives of those killed in last week's shootings at two mosques in New Zealand began to bury the dead Wednesday, as the country's prime minister renewed her call to remember the 50 victims rather than the white supremacist accused of slaughtering them. New Zealand Police Commissioner Mike Bush said police have now formally identified and released the remains of 21 of those killed. New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's plea not to give any notoriety to the accused 28-years-old Australian white supremacist first came in a speech to Parliament prompted by the accused gunman's decision to dismiss his lawyer and represent himself.
Under the agreement, Facebook will create a new advertising portal for ads linked to housing, employment and credit ads that will limit targeting options for those ads across all of its services, including Instagram and Messenger, the rights groups said in a joint statement. "There is a long history of discrimination in the areas of housing, employment and credit, and this harmful behaviour should not happen through Facebook ads," Facebook's Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg said in a separate statement. Facebook, the world's largest social network with 2.7 billion users and nearly $56 billion in annual revenue, has been on the defensive over its advertising practices, while also fending off privacy scandals and disclosures that Russia used its platform to meddle in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Facebook will overhaul its ad-targeting systems to prevent discrimination in housing , credit and employment ads as part of a legal settlement. The changes to Facebook's advertising methods —which generate most of the company's enormous profits — are unprecedented.

LONDON (AP) — Why did Facebook air live video of the New Zealand mosque shooting for 17 minutes? Didn't anyone alert the company while it was happening?
House Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson wrote to the CEOs of Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Microsoft requesting a briefing next week on the spread of violent content on their platforms. Thompson's request follows Friday's mosque shootings in New Zealand, where a suspected shooter livestreamed a video of one of the attacks, which was later shared repeatedly on tech platforms.
