COLMAR, Jan 25 (AFP) - A total of 68 people were being held by police in eastern France Tuesday after a series of raids targeting alleged users of child-sex pornography.

The suspects include men and women aged between 16 and 60, according to Marie-Claude Weiss who is deputy-prosecutor in the town of Colmar.

An investigation into "recording, possession and transmission of paedophile imagery" was launched nearly a year ago after the arrests of two other suspects, and police have been monitoring access to a number of Internet sites.
