U.K. Home Secretary Outlines Initiative to Target Online Extremism

The U.K. has announced an initiative to filter extremist information on the Internet.
"[Home Secretary] Jacqui Smith said she wanted to use technology to stop "vulnerable people" being "groomed for violent extremism".

"Because something is difficult, that is no reason not to have a go at it," she added. "The internet can't be a no-go area for government."

Few details were provided as to how this would be done.
