Australian police break up child porn network

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

Officers seized computer hardware containing hundreds of thousands of child exploitation images and videos, police said.

The network originated in Germany. The crackdown in Australia came after a tip from Interpol.

The men are alleged to have accessed and downloaded the images over a file-sharing network.

Phil Mercer reports.
