Families sue social media over terrorist killings

Families of three victims of the Orlando nightclub massacre have sued Facebook, Google and Twitter. They assert that the gunman who killed their loved ones was radicalised through propaganda found through social media.

The families of Tevin Crosby, Juan Ramon Guerrero Jr. and Javier Jorge-Reyes filed the lawsuit on Monday in federal court in Michigan. They are seeking an unnamed amount of money under a federal law that allows the estates of victims of terrorist attacks to sue anybody who provided “material support” to the terrorists.
