3. France to get tougher on social media hate speech: PM
PARIS (Reuters) - France will toughen rules on hate speech to ensure social media giants do more to remove racist and anti-Semitic content from internet, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said on Monday.
The announcement comes as the 28 European Union countries work on rules that would compel Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Google to be more proactive in filtering and weeding out hate speech on their platforms.
“These days a newspaper director is criminally responsible if hateful comments are posted on its website but if you run a social network anything goes,” Philippe said in a speech on France's policy on racism.
“Nobody is going to convince me that the social networks live in space. What gets published and circulated in France is published and circulated in France and must answer to the laws of the French republic.”
Philippe said France would tighten up its own rules pending progress at EU level, but did not elaborate on when or how.
The man credited with inventing the worldwide web, British computer scientists, Tim Berners-Lee, called in a public letter last week for powerful internet platforms and social media companies to be regulated to prevent the internet from being “weaponized” on a massive scale.

French actress Brigitte Bardot has spoken out against the state of her country, saying that Islamists are “practically everywhere” and that France should not resemble Algeria.
Speaking to the French weekly Valeurs Actuelles, Bardot said that France is not what it once was. “I have been brought up in honor, patriotism, love and respect for my country, and when I see what it has become, I feel desperate,” she said.
The 83-year-old also said that it is “unacceptable” to see burqas become commonplace in France, and Islamists are “practically everywhere.”

An Iranian woman was physically and verbally assaulted after a man slapped her for refusing to wear the hijab.
In a video that has been circulated on social media, the woman can be seen responding to the man who was driving his car but, specifically stopped in a parking lot, believed to be in Tehran, to comment or her visible hair.
The man yelled, demanding that she must “obey the rules”, reported the Daily Mail.
Firmly responding to him, the woman said: “I don’t like this veil. I don’t want to obey this rule. It’s my right”, adding that she will only wear it when he wears it.
Shortly, the man stepped out of his car and slapped the woman across the face. He also threatened to call the police on her. The woman was able to capture the assault with her mobile phone.

7. As a Rotherham grooming gang survivor, I want people to know about the religious extremism which inspired my abusers
Grooming gangs are not like paedophile rings; instead, they operate almost exactly like terrorist networks, with all the same strategies. I’m a Rotherham grooming gang survivor. I call myself a survivor because I’m still alive. I’m part of the UK’s largest ever child sexual abuse investigation.
As a teenager, I was taken to various houses and flats above takeaways in the north of England, to be beaten, tortured and raped over 100 times. I was called a “white slag” and “white c***” as they beat me.
They made it clear that because I was a non-Muslim, and not a virgin, and because I didn’t dress “modestly”, that they believed I deserved to be “punished”. They said I had to “obey” or be beaten.
Fear of being killed, and threats to my parents’ lives, made it impossible for me to escape for about a year. The police didn’t help me. [...]
As someone who has experienced life inside a grooming gang, I can tell you with certainty that none of this is likely to make any difference to the behaviours of groomers. Like terrorists, they firmly believe that the crimes they carry out are justified by their religious beliefs.
8. Germany's top court rejects full-face veiled driver's complaint
The woman, who wears a niqab, had argued a law against driving with the face covered violated her religious freedom. Germany's top court rejected her motion.
Germany's top court on Monday rejected a Muslim woman's request to suspend a ban on driving while wearing a face veil.
The woman had argued that the face veil ban for drivers violated her religious freedom.
The Karlsruhe-based court found the woman, who has worn the niqab for seven years, failed to explain how the law violated her religious freedom or why she faced harm driving unveiled.
According to traffic laws, drivers must have “unhindered all-around visibility” in order to protect other drivers and may “not cover up or obscure their face so that it is no longer recognizable.”
The law, which was approved in September last year, also aims to help police identify and prosecute drivers for traffic violations.
9. Indonesian villagers dump waste on couple suspected of “promiscuity”
A video has emerged of a group of people in a village in Indonesia dragging a young man and his girlfriend out of his home, forcing them in front of a sewer drain and then dumping waste water on their heads. This public humiliation took place on March 7 in the Indonesian province of Aceh.
The two victims were accused of being alone together in a room despite being unmarried, which is forbidden by sharia law, an Islamic law code which is enforced in Aceh, a northern province on the island of Sumatra. While an official morality police force called the Wilayatul Hisbah is responsible for enforcing these laws in the region, it is often civilians who take it upon themselves to enforce them.
