Australian police make child porn ring arrests

Australian police say they have broken up a child pornography network, with the arrest of at least 13 men across the country.

In an investigation codenamed Operation Belfort, the Australian Federal Police (AFP) searched properties in the states of Victoria, Queensland and New South Wales.

They seized computers, hard drives, laptop computers, portable storage devices and mobile phones.

AFP cybercrime operations manager Glen McEwen told reporters that the internet had ''no geographical or physical boundaries'' and attracted ''all walks of life''.

He added: ''You just never know who could be involved in this''.
