A man in Thailand this week live-streamed himself murdering his baby daughter on Facebook, the latest example of the use of the social-media platform to broadcast disturbing, violent videos.
The incident highlights the global scale of Facebook’s challenge in sifting through live video in different languages and countries largely from its offices in Silicon Valley.
The footage of the killing on Monday was up for about 24 hours before Facebook took it down, according to media reports. Reuters reported that the man broadcast two videos, the first of which was viewed 112,000 times, and a second which garnered 258,000 views. The man later killed himself off-camera, the media reports said.
