Islamic school keeps watchful cyber eye on students
Teachers at New Zealand's biggest Islamic school are monitoring students' online activity in light of increasing international concerns over how extremist groups are using the internet to recruit members.
Principal of Mangere's Al-Madinah School, Asin Ali, told the Herald on Sunday that cyber-monitoring of his 550 students was being conducted, including scanning for extremist-related material. The students and their parents know of the surveillance.
Ali said no content had caused concern but vigilance remained important to help ensure young, Islamic New Zealanders were protected from dangerous activity.
