35 Arrested In Child Porn Sting

ITALIAN police have launched a massive new operation against online child pornography as part of a larger international investigation that has already led to hundreds of arrests.
"Thirty-five people were placed under investigation for possession and Internet transmission of pornographic images of children, and their homes were searched," a police source in Venice said.
Dozens of computers, CD-ROMs and videos were seized during the swoop, which involved around 100 police in about 13 regions of the country, the source said.
Ordered by Venetian judge Maria Rosaria Micucci, the "Grand Canal" larger international probe was launched in December 2003.
In coordination with Europol and Interpol, it has already resulted in hundreds of arrests in 35 countries in Europe, 15 in Africa, 16 in Asia and 11 in the Americas.
"Places were discovered where photographs and videos were made of children and sometimes new-born babies forced to submit to sexual relations with adults," during the international operation, said a statement by Venice police, which gave no details on the location of the sites.
