Investigators have busted an international pedophile ring that charged people money to watch live online broadcasts of Filipino children being sexually abused, authorities said.
Under way since 2012, the operation has resulted in the arrest of 29 people, 11 of them from the group in the Philippines that facilitated the abuse, Britain’s National Crime Agency (NCA) said in a statement Wednesday.
Some of the people who arranged for the abuse, which was filmed on webcams, were from the children’s own families, it said.
