THE EXECUTION OF American photojournalist James Foley at the hands of Islamic State terrorists in Syria was filmed and posted online this week.
It was gruesome, and graphic, but watched by millions around the world.
YouTube has been removing the video from its site, and Twitter has said it will ban users who link to it.
Some commentators have said such videos are tools of propaganda for terrorists, others are particularly concerned about the hurt they cause to victims’ families.
Some, however have argued that raw footage like that of James Foley’s execution show us the brutal reality of the terrorists’ crimes.
We want to know what you think: Should graphic videos of terrorist acts be banned?
