Swiss police uncover child porn ring spanning 78 countries

Posted:
VAUD, SWITZERLAND (AP) -- Swiss police say they have uncovered an Internet child pornography network spanning 78 countries.

Officials started an investigation after a tip from Interpol that a music
web site based in Switzerland was actually being used as a forum to spread
child pornography.

According to police, the web site owners were unaware of how their site
was being used.

A Swiss federal police spokeswoman said the investigation involved people
from the U.S., Poland, Greece and a number of other countries.

Swiss newspaper Le Matin Dimanche says dozens of arrests have been made
as part of the investigation, which started in may 2008.
