Minor being sought for distributing child porn

Officers of the police’s cyber crimes unit said on Wednesday that they have traced a minor who is alleged to have been sending sexually explicit photos and other material over the Internet to children aged between 8 and 11.

The suspect, whose age was not given, is understood to have approached the children via chat rooms where he asked for their e-mail addresses and those of their friends before sending them the offending material.

Police found the suspect’s home, in northern Greece, by using his IP address and raided the premises. A search turned up a computer drive which officers confiscated and were examining.

The youth remained at large on Wednesday night.
