Hundreds arrested in child-exploitation probe
Question of the Day
WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says more than 200 adults have been arrested in a five-week international investigation of child pornography.
ICE Director John Morton said 123 child victims were identified in the investigation, which ended in early December. It found 110 victims in 19 U.S. states. The others were living in six countries.
Mr. Morton said the investigation was part of the agency’s effort to find and rescue victims and arrest abusers and people who make or transmit child pornography.
Two unidentified adults also have been charged in Los Angeles with molesting a girl who appeared in online photos to be about 13 when she was abused. The man and woman are charged as “Jane Doe” and “John Doe.”
