Daesh militants are developing their own social media platform to avoid security crackdowns on their communications, the head of the European Union's police agency said Wednesday.Europol Director Rob Wainwright said the new online platform had been uncovered during a 48-hour operation against internet extremism last week.During a Europol-coordinated crackdown on Daesh and Al-Qaeda material, which involved officials from the United States, Belgium, Greece, Poland and Portugal, over 2,000 extremist items were identified, hosted on 52 social media platforms.However, Wainwright said that Daesh, by creating its own service, was responding to concerted pressure from intelligence agencies, police forces and the tech sector, and were trying to found a way around it.
