Police in Vienna have uncovered a global internet child porn ring, the biggest such find in Austrian criminal history. Videos showing what is described as “the worst kind of sexual abuse of children” were thought to have been filmed in eastern Europe. The images then passed through Britain and Russia before ending up on a host website in Austria. Leading police internet expert Harald Gremel said that in a 24-hour period, authorities recorded more than 8,000 hits on the website. This left a trail of over 2,360 computer addresses from 77 countries, principally the US and Germany.
