Police smash Bulgarian paedophile film business
Bulgarian and German police have smashed a gang making and distributing pornographic films featuring children aged between six and eight, Bulgaria's Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov said Friday.
"Five people were arrested in Bulgaria during an anti-paedophile police operation," Tsvetanov told journalists. "Between 200 and 300 films containing revolting scenes with children from six to eight" had been made in Bulgaria and distributed online, he said.
The Focus news agency quoted him as saying that the swoop involved Bulgaria's police and counterparts from Wiesbaden in Germany, as the film distributors came from both countries.
