More than 100 people have been arrested in a major Europe-wide crackdown on child pornography.

The European law enforcement agency Europol says those sharing the most extreme forms of online video material were targeted, including footage of babies and toddlers being sexually abused and raped.

Police working on Operation Icarus have detained at least 112 people in 22 countries including Austria, France, Denmark and Spain. There are 269 suspects.

Europol says it is also focusing on identifying the producers of the material and their victims.
