BRASÍLIA: More than 100 people were detained Thursday across Brazil in what authorities said was the country’s biggest ever crackdown on internet child pornography. Some 2,600 police officers deployed across 24 of Brazil’s 26 states and the capital to serve 578 arrest and search warrants related to online sexual exploitation of children and adolescents. So far 132 people had been taken in, including teachers and public sector workers ranging from 20 years old to retirement age, the authorities told journalists in Brasilia. A million pieces of pedophile content were uncovered, officials said.
