Are social media companies removing war crimes evidence?
BBC, 01 Jun 2023

This material can be used as evidence to help prosecute war crimes. But the BBC has spoken to people affected by violent conflict who have seen the major social media companies take down this content.
The increasing use of AI means the companies own policies of allowing graphic content to stay on their platforms if it shows human rights abuses, are being undermined, leading to vital evidence being lost for good.
