Weekly digest

Indonesia tightens security ahead of election result

Tensions are running high after the elections, with Indonesia’s counter-terrorism services arresting at least 10 people.

Details emerge of Arden’s plan to tackle online extremism
Two months after the Christchurch attacks, New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Arden is planning a new project alongside France’s President Emmanuel Macron, according to The Guardian. The two leaders are calling upon other nations to enforce laws banning extremist content online. Named ‘The Christchurch Call’ the summit also hopes to set new laws for reporting on terrorism.
Christchurch attack: Facebook curbs live feed
Ahead of an Online Extremism Summit in Paris, Facebook has announced new plans to curb violations of its Live Stream rules, a BBC report reveals. This includes a ‘One Strike Policy’ to ban any violators and comes after the live-streaming of March’s Christchurch attack in New Zealand, killing 51 people. 1.5 million copies of the video stream were later removed from Facebook, compelling world leaders to pressure the tech giant to change its policies.

7 Reasons Why UNDP’s Housing Work in Mosul is Important

Mosul’s Old City was decimated by Daesh. At the time of liberation, it was estimated that 10 million tonnes of rubble – equivalent to three Giza pyramids – was left in the city. Today, UNDP is working to rehabilitate 15,000 homes in the area. UN Resident Coordinator in Iraq Marta Ruedas explains why this project is crucial in bringing this once-vibrant city back to life on The Global Coalition website.

What is the Coalition?

The Global Coalition against Daesh was formed in September 2014 and is unique in its membership, scope and commitment. Together, the Global Coalition is committed to degrading and ultimately defeating Daesh.

The Coalition’s 79 members are committed to tackling Daesh on all fronts, to dismantling its networks and countering its global ambitions. Beyond the military campaign in Iraq and Syria, the Coalition is committed to: tackling Daesh’s financing and economic infrastructure; preventing the flow of foreign terrorist fighters across borders; supporting stabilisation and the restoration of essential public services to areas liberated from Daesh; and countering the group’s propaganda.
