SiliconFreak -> Suspects arrested in global child porn raid ! (5/10/2006 8:30:43 PM)

Police in 12 European Union countries and the United States searched more than 150 houses and arrested several people suspected of being involved in child pornography, the European police agency said on Wednesday.

The operation, codenamed "Baleno", is the result of a worldwide investigation led by the Dutch National Police Agency, Europol said in a statement.

The Dutch police provided initial intelligence to 76 countries related to an Internet message board whose members' activities included possession and distribution of child abuse material, the statement said.

The network used sophisticated techniques to hide members' electronic identities and to post encrypted content for a short period of time on free Web services.

"Today's arrests and house searches are an important action against those who either directly or indirectly are responsible for the sexual exploitation of children," Europol Director Max-Peter Ratzel said in the statement.

"The next step in the investigation will be to try to prove the link between the illegal content and the active abuse."
