Instagram chiefs are refusing to axe posts glorifying 9/11

Instagram instead urged users of the app to unfollow or mute the offensive account

One online image shows the World Trade Center being hit by a plane and the  caption: “One of the most beautiful scenes.”

But Instagram insists the account does not breach its guidelines.

And the Facebook-owned platform advises people to just unfollow or mute the account if offended.

As recently as Sunday the Abogasm_1990 account posted an execution clip.

Among its followers are 20 other pro-IS accounts with more than 7,700 followers.

The Center for Countering Digital Hate reported the accounts to Instagram.
Insta said  as “a global community we understand people may express themselves differently”.

CCDH chief exec Imran Ahmed said: “It is unbelievably irresponsible, but sadly unsurprising.

“The government urgently needs the power to force social media firms to enforce their own terms of service.”
