Europol says Islamic State presence on internet significantly reduced

THE HAGUE (Reuters) - European police agencies have dealt a significant blow to the presence of Islamic State on the internet by knocking out several servers used by the group, European police agency Europol said on Monday.

“They have disappeared from an important part of the internet”, Belgian prosecutors spokesman Eric Van Der Sypt said at a news conference at Europol headquarters in The Hague.

“I cannot say at this time it is 100%, we will see how they recuperate from this.”
