Alleged child porn ring masterminds in German trial

, Comments 0 comments

Nine men appeared in court in Germany Wednesday charged with organising a vast international child porn ring, in one of the country's biggest such cases.

Two of the nine men, aged between 30 and 58, were charged with sexual abuse of children in addition to distributing child pornography.

Prosecutors said the men acted as administrators for a group with some 500 members worldwide, 140 of whom have already been identified.

Authorities smashed the ring last year, seizing 220 computers and around 100,000 videos and pictures of child pornography.
