Worldwide child porn ring suspects include 11 Greeks

Eleven Greeks are among the 348 suspects arrested in an international Canadian-led operation to smash a pedophile ring, it emerged on Friday.

The Athens-Macedonian News Agency said that six of the suspects are from Athens, four from Thessaloniki in northern Greece and one from Hania on Crete. The 11 men were arrested in September last year on suspicion of trading and sharing indecent images of children.

Police in Toronto announced this week that their child pornography investigation led to the rescue of 386 children around the world and the arrest of 348 people. Officers said they began their investigation in 2010 and worked with Interpol in more than 50 countries including Australia, Spain, Mexico, Norway and Greece.

The identities of the Greek suspects have not been made public.
