United Nations secretary-general Antonio Guterres warned on Wednesday that the world is facing an unprecedented threat from intolerance, violent extremism and terrorism that affects every country, exacerbating conflicts and destabilizing entire regions.
Extremism should be treated as a global problem like climate change, says Tony Blair, speaking about the role of education in the wake of the Christchurch mosque shootings. The former UK prime minister said there should be an international agreement to put teaching against extremism into education systems around the world.
Ian Austin has become the ninth MP to quit Labour this week, blaming leader Jeremy Corbyn for creating a culture of extremism and intolerance. He told the BBC the leadership had failed to tackle anti-Semitism and had turned the party into a narrow sect.
