Spain's Interior Ministry says police have arrested 41 people accused of possessing child pornography videos and sharing them over the Internet.

The ministry says the suspects were arrested last week in 30 Spanish provinces and include farmers, architects, civil servants, electricians and computer technicians.

The ministry said in a statement issued Wednesday that the arrests stemmed from tip-offs by Internet users.

It said some of these users reported that while trying to download music or games from the Internet they ended up with files containing video of adults having sex with minors.
