Extremists Are Flocking To The ‘Dark Web’

Attempts to block extremist material online will always fail despite a British counter-terrorism unit taking down more than 100 web pages a day, a think tank has warned.

The terrorist material reappears on the Internet as quickly as it is banished and the policy risks driving fanatics on to the “dark web” where they are even harder to track, according to the Quilliam Foundation.

It warned that censorship and filtering tactics are ineffective and that openly challenging the material is likely to have a greater impact.
