But as most of the videos have been published abroad, Switzerland can’t take legal action.

The Federal Police Office and the Swiss Intelligence Office constantly scour the internet for violent Islamic content. The two bodies are recognized as a ‘trusted flagger’ by Google, which means their reports are acted on almost immediately.

The Swiss Intelligence Office has already identified 90 people living in Switzerland who are potential jihadist and more than 500 classed as virtual jihadists due to their online activity.
