France’s equalities minister has said social networks must do more to ensure illegal content is immediately taken down, after a video of an alleged rape was shared widely on Twitter.

Two 16-year-old boys have been charged with the rape of a teenage girl and remanded in custody outside Paris.

When the video of the alleged attack was flagged late last week to French government services dealing with illegal content online, the police posted a message on Twitter asking the public not to share the images.

The boys were quickly identified online. One voluntarily went to a police station in the Essonne area, south of Paris, and the other was arrested shortly after. They were questioned by police over the weekend and charged with rape as well as making and sharing violent and degrading images.
