Social media sites are facing backlash after failing to contain the spread of a video of an attack on two New Zealand mosques.

The man who allegedly carried out the shootings reportedly broadcast 17 minutes of the attack on a Facebook livestream. Both YouTube owner Google and Twitter also say they're working to remove video of the shootings from their sites.
