Man, 47, facing porn charges in Larissa

Police in Larissa, central Greece, on Tuesday arrested a 47-year-old man over child porn charges.

According to initial reports in the last six months the suspect posed as a 19-year-old on his Facebook profile in order to communicate online and via phone with underage girls.

He subsequently blackmailed them into forwarding nude photographs in exchange for him not posting other indecent material, already in his possession, on the global social networking site.
