Social media giants have scrambled to pull down vision of a gunman who live-streamed killings in the German town of Halle.

The attacker in Germany, who live-streamed his rampage on Amazon's gaming subsidiary Twitch on Wednesday, shot dead two people after failing to gain entry to the synagogue on the holiest day of the Jewish year.

The nearly 36-minute-long video closely resembled footage live-streamed in March in Christchurch, where the gunman also wore a camera as he killed 51 people at two mosques.

The Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism, whose members include Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Twitter, said they were collaborating to take down the videos using"hashing" technology, which reduces content to code so it can be spotted and removed automatically.

"We are in close contact with each other and remain committed to disrupting the online spread of violent and extremist content," the group said in a statement.

Google and Telegram did not respond to requests for comment.
