Spain Shuts Down 62 Internet Child Porn Forums

A Reuters newswire article, via Yahoo! News, reports that:

Spanish police have arrested six people in Spain and shut down 62 international Internet "communities" that exchanged child pornography, the Interior Ministry said on Saturday.

In an almost year-long investigation, Spanish police detected the Web connections of 2,870 Internet users in 40 countries, including Spain, who distributed pictures and videos of babies and children through online forums or "communities" of paedophiles.

The investigation led to the arrest of six people in Spain who were accused of distributing child pornography, the ministry said in a statement. It carries a sentence of up to eight years in prison.
