VOA/AFP | [French Council of the Muslim Faith] Sues Facebook, YouTube Over NZ Attack Video
The council said it was suing the French branches of the two tech giants for "broadcasting a message with violent content abetting terrorism, or of a nature likely to seriously violate human dignity and liable to be seen by a minor," according to the complaint, a copy of which was seen by AFP.

In France, such acts can be punished by three years' imprisonment and a 75,000 euro ($85,000) fine.

The CFCM, which represents several million Muslims in France, said it took Facebook 29 minutes after the beginning of the broadcast to take it down.

The panel, the House Committee on Homeland Security, said it was "critically important" to filter the kind of violent images seen in the video.
