In 22 European countries near about 112 people have been arrested in a massive police operation on Friday against online child pornography, a media report said.

For allegedly sharing online videos of children being sexually abused and raped, the suspects were arrested, said the Daily Mail.

Rob Wainwright, director of policing agency Europol in The Hague, said”So far we have identified 269 suspects with 112 arrests,”

“The operation targeted those sharing the most extreme forms of video material, which included babies and toddlers being sexually abused and raped. A lot of the material seized during house searches is awaiting forensic examination in order to support follow-up investigations and possible prosecution of offenders,” he said.

In March, police in several countries rescued 230 children. Europol described that operation as “the biggest case of its kind”. The criminal network at one point of time had around 70,000 members worldwide.
