5 Greek men, including 2 police, charged with paying to watch live online abuse of children

Greek authorities say they have charged five men — including two policemen — with allegedly paying to watch on their computers as men in the Philippines sexually abused children as young as six months old.

A police statement Friday said the Greek men were identified following a tip-off from Interpol, which is conducting a global investigation into live streaming of child pornography over the internet.

Police said the suspects paid $100 to $2,500 to watch the abuse of Filipino children up to 9 years old. The two policemen have been suspended from work.
