    Canada - Ontario Police make 60 arrests in child sex exploitation probe.


    "Police in Ontario have arrested 60 people who will collectively face almost 250 charges in a probe into the sexual exploitation of children over the internet.

    The probe involved 99 search warrants executed across Ontario by multiple police forces.

    Charges include child luring and making, possessing and distributing child pornography. A total of 14 victims have also been identified and will be given counselling in their communities, police say.

    Those charged range in age from teenagers to 63 years old."

    " The OPP say the raids also led to the rescue of 14 child victims, and the seizure of drugs and some weapons. Police say they expect to make more arrests and identify more victims as their investigation continues.

    "The sweep carried out over the past few days is another wake-up call to those who commit these monstrous crimes against children," Chief Supt. Don Bell said Thursday. He said police believe most of the suspects do not know each other.

    During Thursday's press conference, police also displayed an animated map showing more than 7,000 unique Internet Protocol (IP) addresses that were gathered over a 180-day period. These IP addresses were flagged as “download candidates for suspected child pornography," police said in a statement".

    "This investigation highlights the pervasiveness of Internet-based dangers of child luring, sexual exploitation and abuse," Naylor said in a statement.
